A northern Minnesota man pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter for the death of his sister in 2009.
Kyle Mitchell Lee Hardy, 21, was 18 when he drunkenly crashed his pickup truck while racing after a party. His teenage sister and another teenager were riding in the open bed. His sister was killed, Fox News reported.
Hardy testified that a car pulled up while he was driving home and they began to race. When the cars approached a curve, Hardy veered off the road to avoid a collision. Hardy's sister and other passenger were thrown from the bed, the Star Tribune reported.
Hardy faces up to eight years in prison.
