Little Falls teen admits texting at time of collision that killed dad, daughter


A teenage driver, who defied the pleas of a passenger to stop texting while driving, has pleaded guilty to texting when she ran a red light and rammed her pickup truck into a van in Sherburne County, killing the other driver and his 10-year-old daughter.

Carlee R. Bollig, 17, of Little Falls, Minn., pleaded guilty Friday in District Court to two counts of criminal-vehicular homicide in the July 21 crash that killed Charles P. Maurer, 54, of Becker, and his daughter Cassy.

Once authorities had exposed as a lie the initial explanation that her boyfriend had been driving, Bollig was charged by juvenile petition in October. She will be sentenced in March.
