Federal authorities say Barbara Iron Hawk was under the influence of intoxicating liquor and drugs during the Nov. 8 accident near Cannon Ball that killed 57-year-old Charlene Summers and 72-year-old George American Horse.
The plea agreement calls for Iron Hawk to plead guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter. Each count carries a maximum penalty of eight years in prison.
A plea hearing has not been scheduled.
