The driver of a car involved in a Tauranga bridge crash that killed electrician Greg Woledge has pleaded guilty to careless driving causing death.

Iain Crisp, 45, also admitted careless driving causing injury and falsifying his logbook, when he appeared in the Tauranga District Court today, SunLive news website reported.

He also admitted possession of cannabis for supply and possession of cannabis seeds and utensils.

Crisp was driving the Mitsubishi that crossed the centre-line crashing into an AMPT Electrical van on the Maungatapu causeway on August 12 last year.

The van, driven by Woledge, 24, crashed through the bridge railings and plunged into the harbour.

Woledge's 23-year-old work colleague managed to free himself and was rescued by Constable Deane O'Connor.

Judge Louis Bidois remanded Crisp on bail for sentencing on April 7.
