NEBRASKA CITY, Neb. (AP) — An Omaha man has taken a plea deal on the charges filed after a southeast Nebraska collision that killed a woman and her 15-year-old stepdaughter.

Otoe County District Court records say 54-year-old Ricky Anthony pleaded no contest Wednesday to two counts of felony vehicular homicide. Prosecutors dropped three related charges in exchange for Anthony's pleas. His sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 21, a year after the fatal crash.

Thirty-two-year-old Rachel Curry and 15-year-old Chloe Curry died after their pickup truck collided with a sport utility vehicle on U.S. Highway 75 near Nebraska City. Authorities say it occurred after Anthony's SUV swerved into oncoming traffic.

Rachel Curry's husband, Michael Curry, was driving the pickup. He was treated at St. Mary's Hospital in Nebraska City.

Authorities say Anthony received a ride from the crash scene and was later found in Falls City, where he'd been staying temporarily.
