DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A 92-year-old Oberon woman given a $20 ticket in a fatal crash is contesting the citation.

Faith Mitzel was cited for driving on the wrong side of the road in the May 19 crash on state Highway 57 that fatally injured 30-year-old Sheri Leidholt of Devils Lake.

Benson County State's Attorney Jim Wang says Mitzel has a right to contest the ticket, and a hearing is scheduled July 26.
