PAINESVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A northeastern Ohio man says he didn't stop when he hit a 28-year-old man in the road because he thought he'd hit a deer.
Johnny McKinney says he didn't see what he hit that night in February in Madison County, northeast of Cleveland. Turned out it was a man named Joseph Gersin, who was found later in the road and pronounced dead at a hospital.
The (Willoughby) News-Herald (http://bit.ly/19NIpjk ) reports that the 46-year-old McKinney pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of failure to stop after an accident, and misdemeanor driving under a financial responsibility license suspension.
McKinney's driver's license was suspended at the time of the crash.
He faces three years in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 12. He remains free on bond until then.
