A former Suffolk County Community College associate dean has admitted to driving while high on methamphetamine when he caused a crash that killed two men on the Meadowbrook State Parkway two years ago.

Robert Beodeker pleaded guilty Monday at Nassau County court to charges of vehicular homicide and driving while ability impaired.

Prosecutors said the 52-year-old Aquebogue man was driving along the parkway when his truck struck a vehicle on the side of the roadway on March 4, 2013.

Two men who were fixing the vehicle, 76-year-old John Elder of Freeport and 65-year-old Edward Ross of North Bellmore, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Judge Christopher Quinn is scheduled to sentence Beodeker on May 18.
