A Scott County man pleaded guilty Friday to one count of causing death while driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
Garan A. Terrell, 19, of Austin faces up to four years in prison under a plea agreement with the Jackson County prosecutor’s office.
Terrell was arrested last fall in connection with the death of 17-year-old Danika Collins, of Seymour, following a wreck on Seymour’s far west side.
Terrell pleaded guilty to the one charge, causing death when operating a motor vehicle with a Schedule I or II controlled substance in the blood. Two other charges, including reckless homicide, were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
