LARNED, Kan. (AP) -- A central Kansas man has pleaded guilty to charges in a drunken driving crash that killed another motorist in February 2011.

Fifty-seven-year-old Loren D. Lane, of Larned, was accused of driving into oncoming traffic at an intersection on Kansas 156. His vehicle collided with one driven by 47-year-old Rick Perez, of Great Bend. Perez died at a Pawnee County hospital.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/LVufB1) that Lane pleaded guilty in Pawnee County District Court to involuntary manslaughter and being under the influence. In return, the county prosecutor dismissed charges of failure to yield and failure to wear a seat belt.

Lane is free on bond pending sentencing July 6.
