A driver involved in a head-on crash that killed "A Christmas Story" director Bob Clark and his son has pleaded no contest in Los Angeles to two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
Hector Velazquez-Nava, a 24-year-old Mexican national, faces up to six years in state prison when he is sentenced September 27th.
Prosecutors says Velazquez-Nava was drunk when he steered his sport utility vehicle into the wrong lane of Pacific Coast Highway in April, striking Clark's sedan.
The filmmaker and his 22-year-old son died at the scene.
Authorities say Velazquez-Nava had a blood-alcohol level of point-two-four percent, three times the legal limit for driving.
Both he and his passenger were treated for minor injuries.
