Another week, another negro hit-and-run.
How many of these crimes are truly accidental, given that the victims always end up being white?
A Camillus man admitted to three felonies today in connection with a June crash in Clay that killed a bicyclist.
Vontelle Sparks, 33, pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene and tampering with evidence as families from both sides watched.
He will spend 4 1/3 to 11 years in prison.
Sparks, who had been drinking, was driving a Kia Sportage on West Taft Road around 6:30 a.m. when he struck and killed bicyclist Lawrence Maturo, 27, of North Syracuse.
He then drove away from the scene and left the SUV on Syracuse’s North Side. He then conspired with his girlfriend and his girlfriend’s mother — who owned the vehicle — to cover up his involvement, reporting the SUV as stolen and hiding it in some dense shrubs on Carbon Street.
Today, Maturo’s family watched in silence as negotiations stretched on for nearly an hour.
Sparks remains in jail. He’ll be sentenced Nov. 14.
