The man facing six charges in a car crash that killed four people in Huron County has pleaded no contest.
Andrew Braun, 23, now faces up to one year in prison for each person that was killed during the crash last July.
The Huron County Sheriff's Department says two pickup trucks collided at the intersection of Stein Road and Maxwell Road, outside of the rural community of Pigeon.
Braun was driving a 2012 GMC with no passengers. The other vehicle, a 2011 Chevrolet Crew Cab, had six people inside. Three people riding in the Chevy were ejected from the vehicle.
The crash killed 40-year-old Joshua Heck, 38-year-old Jessica Heck, 13-year-old Taylor Heck and 13-year-old Brenden Smith. The Hecks are all related and from the Pigeon area. Smith was from Caseville.
20-year-old Jacob Langley and 15-year-old Jarrod Heck were the other two passengers in the Chevy.
Survivors were initially taken to Scheurer Hospital in Pigeon. Due to their injuries, they were all eventually taken to out-of-county hospitals, with one going to a Saginaw-area hospital and the other two going to a Flint-area hospital.
The Sheriff's Department received assistance from The Oliver Township Fire Department, Elkton Village Police, Pigeon Village Police and the Michigan State Police.
The four deaths made this the deadliest car crash in Huron County in 21 years.
