Man pleads guilty in 2018 Iowa motorcycle fatality

Mason City, Iowa – A man accused of being drunk when he ran his motorcycle into a car in Mason City last year, killing his passenger, has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide.

The Globe Gazette reports that 41-year-old Brandon Roy Kellar, of Mason City, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to vehicular homicide by reckless driving. In exchange, prosecutors dropped a charge of vehicular homicide while under the influence. Kellar faces up to 10 years in prison when he’s sentenced Nov. 19.

Kellar entered the plea just before jury selection in his trial was set to begin.

Police say Kellar was driving the motorcycle late on the night of Sept. 28, 2018, when he ran into the back of a car. He and the woman riding with him, 36-year-old Shawn True, were thrown off the bike. True died from her injuries..
