Brett Truskin pleaded guilty Thursday to charges including vehicular homicide for the Nov. 18 crash that killed Gregory Loper. Truskin was immediately sentenced to a maximum term of five to 10 years as part of a plea agreement.
The Ivyland man's attorney says his client was addicted to heroin at the time he drove the wrong way down a one-way street and fatally struck Loper. Authorities say Truskin had caused a three-car DUI crash on I-95 a few hours earlier but had been released without having to post bail.
Attorney Richard Hark tells The Philadelphia Inquirer ( http://bit.ly/LNWfdc) his client apologized to Loper's family.
