Tacoma man pleads guilty to vehicular homicide

June 26, 2013 

A Tacoma man accused of drunken driving in a wrong-way crash on state Route 520 that killed the other driver has pleaded guilty and will be charged next month.

King County prosecutors are recommending a 10-year prison term when Michael Robertson, 25, is sentenced July 26. He pleaded guilty Friday in Seattle to vehicular homicide.

The crash April 4 in Seattle’s Montlake area killed 58-year-old Morgan Williams, a longtime employee of Eddie Bauer who was driving to work. The Washington State Patrol said Robertson made a U-turn on the freeway and had an empty bottle of whiskey in his car.
