Buffalo, NY (WBEN) A Buffalo man pleads guilty to a deadly hit and run back in May.

54-year-old Wade Sanders of Buffalo has pleaded guilty before Erie County Court Judge Kenneth F. Case to Leaving the Scene of an Incident Resulting in Death. 

Back on May 26th, 60 year-old Arthur Redrick of Buffalo was attempting to cross Bailey Avenue at Lang Avenue in the City of Buffalo when he was struck and killed by an SUV driven by Sanders. Sanders immediately left the scene without stopping. With help from Amherst Police, Buffalo Police Accident Investigators located the car a few days later on Fox Street.

When Sanders was later questioned by investigators, he confessed to being the driver of the vehicle that struck and killed Redrick, claiming he did not come forward sooner because he was scared.

Sanders faces a maximum of 7 years in prison when he is sentenced on November 22, 2017.
