LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Lisbon man has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal crash that killed a motorcyclist.

The Sun Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2lWzOZY ) 24-year-old Zachary Greene entered the plea on Friday. He faces up to five years in prison for the felony.

The June crash left 28-year-old Jeff Sickel, of Brunswick, with severe head injuries. He died at a hospital.

Police say Greene had been returning home when he made a left turn in his pickup truck and collided with the motorcycle.

Greene initially said he thought he heard something hit his truck, but left because he hadn’t seen anything.

Prosecutors say Greene later told police he thought he saw a motorcyclist “fly over the hood” and land in the roadway.

A judge is expected to sentence Greene in April.
