KANSAS CITY, KS (AP) -

A Kansas City, KS man has pleaded guilty to causing a deadly crash while fleeing from a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper.

The Kansas City Star reports that 47-year-old David Colvin admitted to a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the August 2016 death of Janet Eimer. The 66-year-old KCK woman died when Colvin took off after the trooper tried to stop him for a traffic violation. He then ran a red light and collided with Eimer's vehicle.

The patrol said at the time that the trooper hadn't started to pursue the vehicle, but was following at a distance when the crash occurred.

Sentencing is set for March 23.
