BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A man who fatally ran over a woman with his car pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter Wednesday.
Police arrested Ricky Mellerson, 54, in August after a woman died after being run over by a car. Police say Mellerson ran over Kimberly Thompson, 46-year-old local woman, while drunk.
Mellerson pleaded guilty Wednesday to driving his car in reverse through a parking lot and striking her.
When he is sentenced in November, Mellerson faces up to 15 years in prison.
