Man pleads guilty to killing motorcyclist, injuring 3 others
WARSAW, N.Y. (AP) — A western New York man has pleaded guilty to causing the death of a motorcyclist and injuring three others in a crash last summer.
The Wyoming County District Attorney’s Office says 29-year-old Joshua Huntress, of Mayville in Chautauqua County, pleaded guilty on Thursday to aggravated vehicular homicide and assault.
Prosecutors say Huntress had taken various controlled substances on July 9 and then attempted to drive from a motel in Warsaw to Chautauqua County. He was traveling on Route 20A in the town of Orangeville when his vehicle plowed into two motorcycles.
A woman riding on one of the motorcycles, 66-year-old Tomasa Martinez of North Tonawanda, suffered fatal injuries.
The man she was riding with and the couple on the other motorcycle suffered serious injuries.
Huntress will be sentenced Jan. 18.
