Ohio man confesses on video killing man in crash

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man says in a video posted online he's willing to take "full responsibility" for a wrong-way car crash stemming from a night of heavy drinking that resulted in the death of another man.
    
The 3 1/2-minute video shows 22-year-old Matthew Cordle saying he "killed a man" on June 22.
    
The video was recorded Tuesday and posted on two websites. Authorities say they saw it Wednesday.
    
Cordle says he "made a mistake" when he decided to drive his truck home after "drinking heavily" and hit the car of a suburban Columbus man.
    
Franklin County prosecutor Ron O'Brien says Cordle was a suspect in the crash but hasn't been charged. O'Brien says he'll ask a grand jury to indict Cordle for aggravated vehicular homicide.
    
Cordle's attorney says the video "is a strong testament" to his character.
