SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man has admitted he was driving under the influence of prescription painkillers three years ago when he crashed head-on into an SUV, killing a 92-year-old man and his cousin.

Glenn Merideth pleaded guilty on Monday to charges including aggravated assault by vehicle while driving under the influence and homicide by vehicle in the deaths of Charles Carl and 76-year-old Ronald Matejick.

Merideth’s attorney tells The (Sunbury) Daily Item (https://bit.ly/2g5fMul ) the plea deal allows for a minimum sentence of 29 months and a maximum sentence of 60 years.

Police say the crash happened about 45 miles north of Harrisburg in Mount Carmel Township. Carl and Matejick died at the scene. Meredith and the woman who was driving the men were severely hurt.

Sentencing is scheduled for February.
