SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Washington tractor-trailer driver has pleaded guilty in an accident that killed one person in Kentucky in May 2015.

The Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet says in a news release that 23-year-old Miroslav Kuzmanovic of Lakewood, Washington, entered the plea Monday to manslaughter, wanton endangerment and prohibited use of a handheld device.

The release says Kuzmanovic was on the device and failed to notice that traffic ahead on Interstate 64 had slowed for a motorist on the side of the highway. His truck hit a car in front of him, killing the driver instantly. Three other vehicles also were involved.

Sentencing was set for Aug. 15 in Shelby County Circuit Court.
