SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A Michigan teenager has pleaded guilty to driving away after fatally striking a man waving traffic away from someone who had just been struck and killed by another vehicle near South Bend.

Eighteen-year-old Joshua Anglemyer of Niles, Michigan, entered the plea Monday to a felony charge of failing to stop after a serious injury accident. A St. Joseph County judge scheduled Anglemyer’s sentencing hearing for Oct. 20.

Police say the teen admitted driving the car when it hit 49-year-old David Fordyce of South Bend in March. Fordyce was directing traffic away from the body of 43-year-old Michael Marks of South Bend along Indiana 933 just north of the city.

Authorities say the driver who hit Marks stopped at the scene. Investigators found the damaged car near Anglemyer’s home.
