PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A 77-year-old Herrick man who was involved in a fatal car crash in May has pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge.

The South Dakota Attorney General’s Office says Herris Lambley has pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree manslaughter.

Authorities say Lambley was driving a pickup truck in May and struck a car at a rural intersection on the evening of May 26. Twenty-four-year-old Herrick resident Steven Wheeler was driving the car and died at the scene.

Lambley suffered injuries that the Highway Patrol at the time called serious but not life-threatening.

Second-degree manslaughter is a class 4 felony punishable by up to 10 years in the state penitentiary.

Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 24 at the Gregory County courthouse.
