Provo • A Springville man who prosecutors say was high on painkillers when he ran a red light and caused a fatal crash has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.

The Daily Herald reports that 48-year-old Bryan M. Long pleaded to automobile homicide Monday in 4th District Court. The charge was downgraded from a second-degree felony to a third-degree felony.

Springville police say the crash happened Dec. 15 when Long hit a car driven by 62-year-old Worth R. Rummage, who was in town from North Carolina visiting family for Christmas.

Authorities say Rummage was trapped in his car and later died of his injuries.

Officers say Long was not injured. Prosecutors say he was high on the painkiller Lortab at the time of the crash.

He faces zero to five years in prison at sentencing April 14.
