UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A driver who prosecutors say struck a minivan while fleeing police, killing two people, has pleaded guilty in the incident.

Twenty-year-old Ronald Hayes guilty to two counts of negligent motor vehicle manslaughter Monday in Prince George’s Circuit Court. He will be sentenced June 23.

Authorities say on Dec. 8, 2013, police tried to stop Hayes while he was driving in Capitol Heights. Prosecutors say Hayes sped from police, turning off his car’s headlights even though it was nighttime.

Officials say Hayes drove through a red light at Hill Road and Central Avenue, and struck a minivan. The driver of the minivan, 23-year-old Brittney Everett of Washington and a passenger, 21-year-old Brittney Queen of Capitol Heights, died.

Prosecutors say Hayes fled the crash scene on foot, but was soon arrested.
