A man pleaded guilty to manslaughter in a crash that killed three people in Acadia National Park.

Praneeth Manubolu now awaits sentencing on three counts of manslaughter and two counts of operating under the influence.

Manubolu had a blood-alcohol content of 0.095 percent, which is higher than the 0.08 percent limit for driving under state and federal law, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Manubolu and his three passengers had spent much of the evening at a tavern and dance club before the crash on the Park Loop Road early on Aug. 31, 2019.

He allegedly told police that “his friends wanted him to drive as he felt he could,” but that “he lost control of his vehicle on a curve and hit a tree.”

Police said he also was driving 75 mph in a 25-mph zone.

His three passengers died at the scene.
