WORCESTER — A Leominster man authorities said caused a fatal 2013 crash while driving drunk and the wrong way on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Auburn is scheduled to plead guilty Friday in Worcester Superior Court.

Dwayne A. Blackman, 37, of 100 Brooks Pond Road, Leominster, is charged with multiple offenses in connection with the crash, which claimed the life of 66-year-old Kathleen A. Borngesser of Toms River, N.J., including manslaughter by motor vehicle, motor vehicle homicide while driving recklessly or negligently and with a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 or higher, motor vehicle homicide by negligent driving, driving so as to endanger and failure to stop for a police officer.

Mr. Blackman and two others were injured in the crash, which occurred around 4:30 a.m., after a toll collector at the Sturbridge exit from Interstate 84 reported a car going in the wrong direction on the westbound ramp to the turnpike. State police soon came upon a fiery crash involving a BMW driven by Mr. Blackman, a minivan that was in flames and a silver Honda. Ms. Borngesser, the sole occupant of the minivan, died as a result of her injuries.

Mr. Blackman and two Weymouth women who were in the Honda suffered non life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Mr. Blackman's trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday, but the case was put off until Friday after Judge Shannon Frison held a series of sidebar meetings with the lawyers in the case. Assistant District Attorneys David P. Feraco and Anthony H. Melia are the prosecutors, and Mr. Blackman is represented by lawyers James J. Gribouski and Darren T. Griffis.

Judge Frison later announced in open court that she and the lawyers had been discussing a potential plea hearing and sentencing, which she said would both occur at 9 a.m. Friday, when members of Ms. Borngesser's family are expected to be available to make impact statements.

The judge ordered that Mr. Blackman, previously released on $5,000 cash bail, be placed on GPS monitoring until Friday's plea hearing and that he surrender his passport.

Mr. Blackman pleaded guilty Monday to a single count of driving without a license in connection with the fatal crash, but has not yet been sentenced on that charge.

It was not known what charges he would be pleading guilty to Friday or what sentences the prosecution and defense would be asking the judge to impose.
