HARRISON -

The man who ran over a tow truck driver on I-95 in Harrison last year entered a guilty plea in court Thursday.

Anthony Mangano pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal accident last December.

Mangano was driving north on I-95 when he ran over Salvatore Brescia, who was standing in the right lane while assisting a driver who had broken down on the side of the road.

Mangano faces up to seven years behind bars when he's sentenced in March.
