Man pleads guilty to causing crash which killed infant son

MONROE COUNTY, Pa. -

A Monroe County man has pleaded guilty to driving drunk and causing a crash that killed his infant son.

Christopher Thomas, 22,  pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, DUI, and other charges.

Thomas crashed his car on Route 611 in Pocono Township last December.

Prosecutors say he walked away from the crash while his 16-month old son Dimitrius Thomas was dying in the backseat.

They also say Thomas had his girlfriend's 16 year old daughter get in the front seat to make it seem as though she has been the driver.

His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 10 at 1 p.m.
