CHESAPEAKE, Va., (WVEC) -- A Norfolk man involved in a fatal crash that killed a Chesapeake city worker in 2017, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Thursday, PIO Kelly Elliott said in a news release.
Courtney Horan was driving a car that was fleeing police Oct. 3, 2017. An officer attempted to pull over his Nissan Sentra for a traffic violation, when Horan refused to stop.
The officer followed the Nissan to the intersection of Johnstown Road and Arthur's Court, where Horan tried to pass a vehicle in front of them.
Police said Horan struck the rear end of another vehicle and lost control of the car, steering into oncoming traffic and colliding with a City of Chesapeake Waste Management truck.
The driver of the waste management truck, 51-year-old George Harris, was killed.
Horan faces anywhere from 5 years to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced
