HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The lawyer for a University of Connecticut shuttle bus driver who struck and killed a 20-year-old student says he has reached a plea deal.

Attorney Hope Seeley told The Associated Press on Friday that Lukasz Gilewski  will enter a plea and be sentenced at Rockville Superior Court on Monday. She did not disclose terms of the deal.

The 22-year-old Newington resident is charged with negligent homicide with a motor vehicle and failing to yield to a pedestrian in the March 22 accident that killed David Plamondon  of Westminster, Mass.

Police say Plamondon was struck in a crosswalk. Both Gilewski and Plamondon were UConn students.

Gilewski and a prosecutor didn’t immediately return messages Friday.

The negligent homicide charge carries up to six months in prison.
