SEATTLE — Former Seattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman pleaded guilty Thursday to hit-and-run and vehicular assault in connection with a car crash last year that injured another driver.

Derrick Coleman pleaded guilty in King County Superior Court as part of an agreement that could mean he avoids jail time. Coleman is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 14.

Prosecutors are recommending no jail time but want him to do community service, provide restitution and not use synthetic marijuana.

Coleman told police he had smoked “spice” — a form of synthetic marijuana — about an hour before the October 2015 crash in Bellevue, east of Seattle.

Police say Coleman’s truck was traveling at 60 mph in a 35 mph zone and hit a Honda Civic. The driver of the Civic suffered a broken collarbone.
