An Ohio resident confessed on YouTube that he killed a man while driving drunk.
Eventually revealing himself as Mathew Cordle, the man repented and admitted to the hit and run which occurred while driving on the wrong side of the road.
“My name is Matthew Cordle, and on June 22nd, 2013, I hit and killed Vincent Canzani," he says somberly. "This video will act as my confession.”
Apologizing to the victim’s family, he pledged to take full responsibility for his actions and cooperate with law enforcers during their investigation.

Cordle ended the video with the following message for viewers:
“I can't bring Mr. Canzani back, and I can't erase what I've done, but you can still be saved. Your victims can still be saved. So, please make the promise to never drink and drive.”
According to a 2011 report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services the percentage of DUI-related traffic deaths in Ohio was 31%.
Franklin County prosecutor Ron O'Brien said that Cordle was a suspect when the police initially looked into the case but hadn’t been charged until his public confession, according to local news reports
While a vehicular homicide remains one of the most egregious DUI case in almost all US states, Cordle’s YouTube post will serve as a ‘strong testament’ to the driver’s character, the persecutor said.
