LOUISA, Va. (AP) -- The driver of a refrigeration company van has pleaded guilty in a hit-and-run accident that killed two motorcycle riders in Louisa County.
Media outlets reports 30-year-old Kenneth G. Wadford of Cumberland entered the pleas Monday to involuntary manslaughter, hit and run, and driving with a revoked driver's license.
Court records show Wadford's van struck a motorcycle June 22 driven by 50-year-old O'Neal F. Newman. Newman and 53-year-old passenger Joyce A. Herriott were thrown from the motorcycle.
Louisa Commonwealth's Attorney Rusty McGuire says Wadford had consumed four alcoholic drinks at a campground with some friends before the accident.
Wadford faces up to 31 years in prison. Sentencing is set for Jan. 16.
