Ohio man pleads guilty in deadly hit-and-run

KETTERING, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man has changed his plea to guilty in a deadly hit-and-run crash in 2011.

Twenty-two-year-old Timothy Grice of Miamisburg pleaded guilty to all three charges against him on Friday.

He faces between eight and 16 years in prison when he’s sentenced on June 5 in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and fleeing an accident scene.

Prosecutors say Grice was high on marijuana when he slammed his car into the back of another vehicle stopped at a red light in Kettering in southwestern Ohio on April 30, 2011.

The driver of the second car, 27-year-old Chad Cross, was pronounced dead at a hospital after rescuers extricated him from his car.

Grice fled the scene but police found and arrested him soon after.
