Rhonda Boisseau, the driver in a car later linked to a June 10, 2017, motorcycle collision at 72nd and Cass streets that left three dead pleaded no contest Friday to willful reckless driving. 

She will be sentenced March 29.

The crash involved two motorcycles : Adam D. Kammann, 34, and his passenger, Christine Zadina, 37, were riding a Harley Davidson when they were struck by Andrew Torrice, 24, on a Suzuki motorcycle. All three died as a result of the crash. 

A nurse who witnessed the crash and attended to the victims at the scene, told authorities that it had appeared the Suzuki was being chased by a white Volkswagon moments before the crash.  

Boisseau, who had no comment after court,  had been ticketed in September 2017 for willful reckless driving, obstructing a police officer, and providing false information. Prior to the citation, police had believed Torrice was at fault in the crash for running a red light on his motorcycle.

Torrice's mother had long insisted that road rage had led to her son's death .

Boisseau has a reckless driving conviction from 2016.  She faces up to 3 months in jail for Friday's misdemeanor conviction.  Her sentencing is in March.
