HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man has admitted that he was driving drunk when he struck and killed a woman who was walking home from work.

The Record (http://bit.ly/1DKfVsM) reports that 24-year-old Victor Kwak, of Rutherford, pleaded guilty Wednesday to vehicular homicide and drunken driving charges. He faces up to five years in prison when he’s sentenced Sept. 18.

Authorities have said Kwak was speeding when he lost control of his car while driving in East Rutherford in August 2013. His vehicle struck a tree and a lamppost before hitting 28-year-old Sandra Munoz-Molina of Carlstadt,

Munoz-Molina, the mother of four young sons, suffered severe head injuries and died two days later.

Kwak was initially charged with aggravated manslaughter and vehicular homicide.
