MISSOULA - A woman died after a one-car accident Thursday and a Missoula man was charged in her death.

Katherine Byrd, 18, died in a Missoula hospital.

Christopher Laney, 21, was arrested and charged with negligent homicide. Bail was set at $150,000.

Authorities said Laney's blood was drawn at a hospital after he first refused a blood alcohol test and was sent to a state lab for analysis.

Witnesses said the car flipped on a residential street and struck a house.
