A Gladstone teen has pleaded guilty for causing a vehicular accident that killed a 25-year-old woman.

Logan T. Pope, 18, pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree involuntary manslaughter in the death of Ashley R. Miller of Smithville. The accident occurred Oct. 15, 2012, when her car was struck by an oncoming vehicle that was passing another on Missouri 92, near Second Creek Road.
