PARMA, N.Y. — A man pleaded guilty in a crash in Parma that killed the father of two young boys.

Back in March, Jacobs crossed over the center line on west ridge road in parma when his car slammed head-on into Kneeland’s car, killing him.

Investigators say he was drunk. Kneeland was heading home from a swim meet. His wife and children were in the car in front of him and saw the crash.

Police also found a loaded gun in Jacobs’ car. He will be sentenced next month.
