BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A teenage driver charged with killing a Broomfield High School student in 2014 has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide.

The Daily Camera reports (https://bit.ly/20oMFmA ) that the teen, who is not being identified because he is a minor, entered his guilty plea in court Tuesday. The case had been set to go to trial after he previously pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide and other charges related to the crash.

The then-17-year-old had been driving when he struck 16-year-old Chad Britton, who was standing next to a vehicle parked near the school on Nov. 3, 2014. The victim died at a hospital the following day.

Investigators determined the driver had been smoking marijuana before he got behind the wheel.
