A retired Pennsylvania state trooper pled guilty to charges stemming from a crash that killed a driver in Southington back in November.

Joseph Yuran, 55, changed his plea to guilty in Judge Ronald Rice's court Tuesday for the fatal crash that claimed the life of 23-year-old Tyler Richmond.

Yuran pleaded to one count each of aggravated vehicular homicide and OVI.

Police say he ran a stop sign while driving near U.S. Route 224 and State Route 305 when his pickup truck hit Richmond's Chevrolet Malibu.

Yuran's blood alcohol content was recorded as .196, well above the legal limit of .08.

Yuran has been ordered not to drink alcohol due to a previous OVI offense.

He will be sentenced later and faces a mandatory prison term of up to 12 years and a potential lifetime suspension of his driver's license.
