Jermaine D. McGee Jr., 26, pleaded guilty in Portage County Court of Common Pleas to second-degree felony aggravated vehicular homicide and first-degree misdemeanor operating a vehicle under the influence on Friday, said Michael Boltz, bailiff for Judge Laurie J. Pittman.

Scheduling of sentencing is pending completion of a pre-sentencing investigation by the court's adult probation department.

Streetsboro police said they responded after receiving a call for the crash at 11:29 p.m. on July 5, 2021. McGee made a U-turn while eastbound in a Honda Civic on Route 14 near the Ohio Turnpike, police said. Dana A. Griffiths, 22, was westbound on a motorcycle and collided with the car. Griffiths, who was wearing a helmet, was ejected.

According to a supplemental indictment, McGee tested positive for marijuana.
