"My name is Matthew Cordle, and on June 22nd, 2013, I hit and killed Vincent Canzani. This video will act as my confession."
Those are the blunt, honest words of an Ohio man who posted a YouTube confession that he's to blame from a wrong-way crash that killed a 61-year-old suburban Columbus man after a night of heavy drinking.
The video begins with Cordle's face blurred and unrecognizable as he described his struggle with depression and the events of the night. His face becomes clear when he says his name and delivers his confession.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?
Cordle said he says understands the video will give prosecutors "everything they need to put me away for a very long time."
Prosecutors have saved the video as evidence and plan to charge Cordle with aggravated vehicular homicide -- a charge that carries a maximum sentence of eight years in prison upon conviction.
"When I get charged I'll plead guilty and take full responsibility for everything I've done to Vincent and his family," Cordle said.
THE IMPORTANT MESSAGE
Cordle ends the video with a plea for all viewers to not drink and drive.
"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."
