FARMINGTON -- The family of a 20-year-old Layton man who died from injuries suffered in an accident last December hugged the man who pleaded guilty to charges relating to the accident.
Family members of Alex Carr came to 2nd District Court on Thursday for the hearing of Craig Moyes, 19, of Layton.
Moyes, who spoke softly, pleaded guilty to one count of negligent homicide, a class A misdemeanor, and one count of careless driving, a class C misdemeanor.
After the hearing, Carr's family embraced Moyes in the hallway outside of the courtroom.
Judge Robert Dale asked for a presentencing report and set June 9 for a sentencing hearing.
Michael Edwards, Moyes' attorney, had asked that Moyes be sentenced Thursday.
Moyes had been charged with third-degree felony automobile homicide in the death of Carr.
Carr died Dec. 13, 2010, after being taken off life support at McKay-Dee Hospital.
Carr was walking west through a crosswalk at 442 S. State St., in Clearfield, on Dec. 9, 2010, when he was hit by a Chevy truck driven by Moyes. Moyes was traveling south in the outside lane and did not brake or stop before hitting Carr at 40 to 45 miles per hour, police said.
Moyes told police he did not see Carr before they collided. Moyes was traveling the speed limit.
