HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- The man involved in a deadly distracted driving crash has decided to change his plea.
Travis Fox of Indiana was charged in the crash that killed 13-year-old David Talsma over the summer. Last month, he pleaded not guilty to those charges, but he has now told a judge he wants to plead guilty instead.
Fox has admitted to eating and checking his GPS when he smashed into the minivan carrying Talsma.
WZZM 13 spoke to Talsma's father about the plea and about Michigan's distracted driving laws.
"From what they’ve all told me, it’s something to be expected," said Jason Talsma, David's father. "No surprises."
It's hard to be surprised for a father who had the worst shock of his life just a few months ago.
"Thoughts of David will come up," said Talsma.
