GALVESTON, Texas — A Conroe man agreed to plead guilty Friday to killing one person and hurting three others when his car destroyed a horse-drawn carriage last year in Galveston, a prosecutor said.

Michael Shane Grayson Jr., 22, agreed to a 15-year prison sentence in the July 21, 2012, rear-end collision that killed carriage passenger Bobby McKelvey, 57, of Sugar Land, prosecutor Bill Reed said.

Grayson appeared in Judge Kerry Neves’ 10th state District Court in Galveston and accepted a plea offer of 15 years on an intoxication manslaughter charge and a maximum 10 years each on three counts of intoxication assault, Reed said. The maximum punishment on the manslaughter charge was 20 years.
