This guilty plea seems to have been unavoidable for the driver of the car.   The guilty plea does typically qualify as an admission of fault for any civil case that Mr. Leyva may have against the driver for his injuries.  This may be little consolation for Mr. Leyva who apparently suffered very serious injuries due to this accident.  Hopefully, he is on his way to recovery.
