Man pleads guilty for fatal car accident

A 20 year-old man from Stillwater has plead guilty to causing a crash that killed a Minnesota National Guardsman in May 2010. He is charged with felony criminal vehicular homicide.

Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the car accident. State troopers say the 20 year-old was driving erratically and swerving between traffic on Highway 61 when he caused a multi-car crash.

Since the fatal accident, the driver has been over two more times for exceeding the speed limit by at least 20 miles per hour. He is also facing charges of suspicion of drunk driving and underage drinking.
