LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man accused of driving more than 100 mph before an accident that killed his passenger has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide.

Twenty-three-year-old Erick Lopez of Lancaster also pleaded guilty Tuesday in Lancaster County Court to reckless endangerment in the Jan. 3 crash in Lancaster.

Authorities alleged that Lopez was passing vehicles at high speed on a 25 mph zone before he crashed into a utility pole, killing 23-year-old David Castro-Valdez.

Police said neither man was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Lopez is to be sentenced in a few months following completion of a background report.
