Whitehall man pleads guilty in DUI crash that killed other driver


A Whitehall man pleaded guilty Tuesday to homicide by vehicle for a December DUI crash in the borough that killed another driver.

Allegheny County Police said Colin Kenney, 23, was behind the wheel of his 2012 Mustang when he crossed the center line on Brownsville Road and crashed head-on into a southbound 2002 Subaru Legacy being driven by Joseph Edward Fanzo, 68, of Baldwin Borough.

Fanzo was thrown from his car in the crash, and medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

A witness who had been driving behind Fanzo's car said he noticed the Mustang was smoking, so he pulled Kenney out. Kenney identified himself to the witness and said he had severe injuries to both legs, according to the criminal complaint.

A blood test on Kenney determined his blood alcohol content was 0.095 percent, above the state's limit of 0.08 percent.

Kenney pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle, driving under the influence, careless driving and disregarding traffic lanes in exchange for prosecutors withdrawing five other DUI charges and changing the homicide charge from homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence.

District Attorney's Office spokesman Mike Manko said even though Kenney consented to have his blood drawn and tested, a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling saying police need a warrant for blood samples led his office to change the homicide by vehicle while DUI charge and drop DUI charges that were linked specifically to Kenney's blood alcohol content. Kenney pleaded guilty to a general impairment charge, Manko said.

Common Pleas Judge Beth Lazzara will sentence Kenney on Jan. 20.
