A man accused of killing two bicyclists in a 2016 incident took a plea deal in Pima County Superior Court Thursday.

Authorities say Brian Lynch drove a pick-up truck into a pack of bicyclists near La Canada and Hardy in March 2016. Kenneth Vieira, 68, and Clare Rhodes, 72, died in the incident.

Lynch pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of endangerment.

Lynch will be sentenced Aug. 25.
