16-year-old boy pleads guilty in 100 mph SC wreck

Jul 15, 2010 4:20:00 PM - thestate.com
A 16-year-old South Carolina boy has pleaded guilty to reckless homicide in a crash that killed one of his teenage passengers.

Troopers say the boy was driving more than 100 mph when his car left a rural Lancaster County road last December, struck a utility pole and rolled over several times before smashing into a building nearly 300 feet from the road.

The Herald of Rock Hill reported the teen entered an Alford Plea in Family Court on Thursday. In his plea, the boy didn't admit being responsible for the death, but concedes there is enough evidence to convict him. His lawyer says the boy doesn't remember the crash.

The driver and two other passengers were injured.

The teen will be sentenced after an evaluation by the Department of Juvenile Justice.
