Police Lights Generic

PINE CITY, Minn. (AP) — A driver accused in a hit-and-run death in Pine County has pleaded guilty to charges.

WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1loquro ) says 32-year-old Derek Sanders, of Wyoming, has entered the plea to criminal vehicular homicide.

The victim, 24-year-old Trevor Langlois, was standing outside his parked truck on an Interstate 35 entrance ramp last June in Hinckley when Sanders hit him and drove away.

According to the criminal complaint, Sanders admitted to investigators he’d had “half a dozen or so” drinks before the accident and shouldn’t have been driving. It says he claimed he was looking down at the time and wasn’t aware he had struck a person.
