BALLSTON SPA - A Saratoga County man now admits he caused the crash that killed a 14-year-old girl.

Gavin Staulters pleaded guilty Wednesday to vehicular manslaughter.

Staulters was drunk when he hit Kari Liedel as she was walking home with a friend on West Milton Road in July.

Liedel would have started her freshman year at Ballston Spa High School this year.

Staulters faces up to seven years in prison when he's sentenced.
