INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man has pleaded guilty in a 2011 hit-and-run crash that left a teen dead.

According to the Marion County prosecutor’s office, Christopher Stimac entered a guilty plea to a charge¬†for failure to stop after an accident resulting in death.

The 2011 fatal crash happened in the 5100 block of South Franklin Road.

The prosecutor’s office said Stimac hit 13-year-old Hadleigh Cave with his vehicle while the teenager was walking with friends.

Cave later died due to injuries from the wreck.

In June of 2015, after receiving a phone call from Stimac’s estranged wife, where she provided officers with pertinent information related to the crash, Stimac was taken into custody.
