GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Grand Rapids man has pleaded guilty in a hit-and-run crash that killed a moped rider.
This week, Norman Abney pleaded guilty to failing to stop at a scene of a serious personal injury accident and a moving violation causing serious impairment of a body function. A count of being a habitual offender was dropped.
The crash happened around 11 p.m. on June 15 at Hall Street SE and Eastern Avenue SE.
Grand Rapids police say a car traveling south on Eastern Avenue turned left onto Hall Street, crashing into a moped driven by 33-year-old Kevin McAlpin of Grand Rapids. The driver then took off.
An ambulance took McAlpin to a hospital where he died from his injuries.
Abney turned himself in the next morning, police say.
Abney is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 27.
