— A former WXII news anchor plans to plead guilty in a drunken driving accident that killed a male pedestrian, his attorney said.

Locke Clifford, an attorney for Tolly Carr, said that Carr wants to enter a guilty plea when his case is heard in court.

Carr is charged with felony death by motor vehicle, felony serious injury by motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated.

On March 11, Carr drove into a construction zone along First Street in Winston-Salem where he hit and killed Casey Bokhoven, who was walking on the sidewalk steps from his apartment, authorities said.

Blood tests showed Carr had a blood-alcohol content of 0.13 four hours after the accident.

The legal limit in North Carolina is .08.
