Driver sentenced to 30 years in fatal wreck

May 7, 2019

MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — A driver accused of killing a pregnant woman and three other people while on drugs in Kentucky has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

WYMT-TV reports a judge handed down the sentence on Monday for Jason Gibson, who pleaded guilty last month to four counts of murder and one count of fetal homicide in Clay County court. Other charges against him were dismissed.

Authorities say Gibson was under the influence of drugs in the 2015 car crash.

Tiffany Williams was the pregnant woman who was killed, along with her 23-month-old son Kyson, Charlene Lewis and Judy Pennington-Adams.

Lewis’s daughter, Chasity Collett, said she struggles with forgiving Gibson, but knows it is the right thing to do. She says she hopes that with the sentencing healing can begin.
