PHOENIX (AP) - A woman accused of running a red light and causing a fatal crash at a Phoenix bus stop last year has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aggravated assault.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 23-year-old Elsa Olivares entered her plea Tuesday. Her sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 14.

Phoenix police say Olivares ran off after the May 13 accident but she later turned herself in to authorities.

Police say Olivares admitted to being under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the crash.

She was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree murder, aggravated assault, endangerment and leaving the scene of a fatal collision.

Olivares originally pleaded not guilty in the case.

Police say a 50-year-old man was killed in the accident and another person was injured.
