DENVER — A Westminster man pleaded guilty Friday in a careless driving accident that left a one-year-old girl dead.

Timothy Clayton, 51, was accused of careless driving resulting in death and careless driving resulting in injury after an Oct. 14 crash on U.S. 287 in Broomfield, according to the Boulder Daily Camera.

Clayton was driving a SUV towing a trailer near the Rock Creek Pumpkin Farm when he rear-ended a white Kia sedan driven by Michele Pincus, according to a news release from the Broomfield and Adams Counties District Attorney’s Office. Pincus, who was visiting from Los Angeles, suffered serious injuries, while her daughter, Nedra, suffered multiple skull fractures. Nedra eventually succumbed to her injuries.

Following his guilty plea, Clayton is next scheduled to appear Feb. 26 in Broomfield County. He faces a potential maximum sentence of two years in county jail.
