A 32-year-old man pleaded guilty Tuesday to vehicular homicide and failing to remain at the scene of a car wreck in the fatal crash that killed a Tacoma man in March.
Jason Hoke is to be sentenced in September. Pierce County deputy prosecutor Tim Jones said he would recommend a sentence of 10 years.
Authorities said Hoke was at the wheel of a Chevrolet Cruze that ran head-on into a 1996 BMW coupe driven by Boeing Co. employee Douglas Davis near Waller Road East and 46th Street East.
Davis, 57, died at the scene.
