Man charged in crash that killed 5 pleads not guilty

MANCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — The man Kentucky State Police say drove drunk and crashed, killing four people and an unborn child, has pleaded not guilty.

Multiple media outlets report troopers charged 40-year-old Jason Gibson on Thursday with four counts of murder and fetal homicide, among other charges. Gibson entered a not guilty plea Monday.

Kentucky State Police say Gibson was driving under the influence when his car crossed the center line and hit another car along the Hal Rogers Parkway. Judy Pennington-Adams, her pregnant daughter Tiffany, Tiffany’s son Kyson and family friend Charlene Lewis were all killed in the crash.

Gibson will be back in court Jan. 4 for a preliminary hearing.
