CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Journalist and author Donavan James Webster faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter stemming from a wreck last year in Virginia that killed a man.

Media outlets report Webster entered his plea Wednesday in Albemarle County Circuit Court. The 56-year-old is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 26.

Killed in the car crash was 75-year-old Wayne Thomas White Sr. of Waynesboro. Police say a car driven by Webster crossed the center line on U.S. 250 in Afton

Webster is a former senior editor for Outside magazine and has written for The New Yorker, National Geographic and other magazines.

He also has written several books, including “Aftermath: The Remnants of War” and “Meeting the Family: One Man’s Journey Through His Human Ancestry.”
