The driver accused of crashing his car into a bus stop shelter in Makaha in March, killing a 3-year-old boy and injuring four of the boy’s family members, pleaded guilty in state court Tuesday in a plea deal that will net him 20 years in prison.

Potasi S. Uta, Jr. 44, pleaded guilty as charged to negligent homicide, four counts of negligent injury and fleeing the scene of the crash.

Aston Brown died at the bus stop on the makai side of Farrington Highway, fronting Makaha Beach, where he, his mother and siblings were waiting as the family worked out where they would stay for the night.
