Man enters plea in crash that killed Michigan newlyweds

ALLEGAN, Mich. (AP) — A man has entered a plea agreement on charges stemming from a July crash that killed a newlywed couple in western Michigan just miles (kilometers) from where they were married weeks earlier.

WOOD-TV reports Jacob Scot Damron of Wayland pleaded no contest Monday to two felony counts of operating while intoxicated causing death. In exchange, other charges are being dropped. The plea isn’t an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing purposes.

The Allegan County sheriff’s office says 24-year-old Logan Thunderland Allbaugh and 22-year-old Hannah (Kwekel) Allbaugh died following the crash in Heath Township after a car drove through a stop sign and struck their vehicle . The couple’s car then spun out into southbound lanes, where it was hit by another vehicle.

Damron’s sentencing is June 3.
