PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty to charges in a crash that killed a motorcyclist last year.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1oyvR6h ) reports that 33-year-old Fremont Mathias Jr. of Monroeville will remain on house arrest until he is sentenced in June.

Mathias pleaded guilty Wednesday in Allegheny County Court to homicide by vehicle, causing an accident involving injury or death, driving with a suspended license and other counts.

Police said he was behind the wheel of a pickup that collided head-on with a Harley-Davidson in June, killing 69-year-old Lawrence Matvey of Monroeville.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that Mathias left the scene of the crash, saying he was searching for a lost dog. Police alleged that he later asked a relative to take the blame for the crash.
