SOUTH LAKE TAHOE " The driver in a car collision that left a South Lake Tahoe woman critically injured has pleaded guilty to charges in El Dorado County Superior Court.
Patrick Curtis, 24, pleaded guilty to driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence.
April Krouskoupf suffered punctured lungs, liver damage, fractured ribs, facial fractures, broken teeth and a severed tongue as a result of the late-night collision on Sept. 22.
Judge Suzanne Kingsbury warned Curtis he could face prison time because of a previous drunken driving conviction in 2006.
She ordered him placed on electronic surveillance until he is sentenced April 7.
