BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The driver of an SUV involved in a fatal hit-and-run in western New York that went unresolved for more than two years has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident.

Gabriele Ballowe entered the plea in state Supreme Court in Buffalo Monday, a week after she was scheduled to be tried on more serious charges, including vehicular manslaughter.

Ballowe is accused of hitting and killing 52-year-old Barry Moss while he rode his bike in the town of Evans, southwest of Buffalo, in December 2013. She was charged in June after officials said they were able to confirm through new evidence that she was behind the wheel.

Ballowe faces up to a year in jail when she is sentenced in December.
