James Calero pled guilty Friday to criminally negligent manslaughter in the head-on collision death of a Morgan State student in Upper Marlboro in 2015.

Calero, 33, was driving a Cadillac DeVille southbound on Rt. 202 on the night of December 17, 2015, when he lost control, crossed the center line, and crashed almost head-on into a Nissan Altima, according to a statement from Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks.

The driver of the Altima, 20-year-old Adedire Olanrewaju Ososanya, was ejected from his car and died from his injuries at the scene.

Calero was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Calero was driving in excess of the posted speed limit of 50 mph and it is believed he was under the influence of drugs, according to the statement.

He faces up to three years in prison and will be sentenced on March 28.
