A Hamilton man has admitted crashing his car while drunk, killing his female passenger earlier this year.

Boboy Leo Kenny, 23, of Glenview, entered guilty pleas on two charges of driving with excess blood alcohol causing the death of Rea Biggeta Day on April 5, 2014 while making a brief appearance in the Hamilton District Court this morning.

Day, 21, was a passenger in a car  being driven by Kenny which crashed in Garden Heights Ave, Melville, about 3.30am.

His Mercedes hit a tree then bounced into a power pole, snapping it.

She died the following day at Waikato Hospital.

Kenny, a roading worker, returned a blood alcohol level of 147mlg.

The legal adult limit is 80mlg.

Judge Glen Marshall convicted Kenny before remanding him on bail for sentencing in September.
