UC Berkeley graduate journalism student Kevin Jones pleaded no contest today to a charge of misdemeanor vehicular homicide in the car crash that killed Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Halberstam, AP reports. Prosecutors and witnesses to the April 23 crash have said Jones ran a red light while making an illegal left turn. Jones, 27, was driving Halberstam, 73, to an interview with football legend Y.A. Tittle when the fatal crash happened on the westbound Bayfront Expressway at Willow Road.
