Westerlo man admits to bail jumping in vehicular homicide case
The Westerlo man accused of aggravated vehicular homicide has pleaded guilty to bail jumping.
Andrew Gibson allegedly spent months on the run after bailing on his sentencing, but finally appeared before a judge at 4:15 on Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Gibson was intoxicated and driving recklessly on Route 401 in Westerlo back in May 2021, when he crashed headfirst into a minivan, killing one woman and injuring four others.
Gibson posted a $160,000 bond the following month and was released, but when it was time for his sentencing back in February 2022, he didn’t show up.
The judge remanded Gibson to jail without bail.
His next court appearance is set for April 24.
