PEORIA, Ill. -- A Peoria man plead guilty to an aggravated DUI charge stemming from a May 2012 fatal crash on Monday.
Brandon Mack was set to stand trial on Monday, but decided to take a plea agreement instead. Other counts of aggravated DUI and reckless homicide were dropped.
Prosecutors allege that Mack failed to yield to an oncoming garbage truck when turning left from Banner Marsh Road onto Route 24.
Two passengers in the car, Michael Purifoy and Francis Howard, both of Peoria, were killed.
Prosecutors say medical tests show Mack had cannabis in his system at the time of the crash.
Mack's sentencing is scheduled for May.
