GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 40-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a charge related to a distracted driving crash that killed a 13-year-old western Michigan boy.

The Holland Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1lgA8yA ) Tuesday that Travis Fox will be sentenced Dec. 22.

Fox of Crown Point, Indiana, entered the plea Nov. 17 to the one-year misdemeanor.

Police were told he was eating a sandwich and checking his GPS while driving Aug. 3 on Interstate 196 in Georgetown Township, southwest of Grand Rapids. Traffic in front of him had slowed for a construction zone.

David Talsma of Hudsonville was in the backseat of a vehicle that was struck in the crash.

Defense attorney Charles Chamberlain said Fox was in Michigan on business at the time of the crash and has “taken this very seriously.”
