Family Forgives Driver Charged In Deadly Crash

At the request of the victim's family, a man who admitted to causing a deadly crash in Northern Kentucky will not serve any time in prison.

Greg Gibson ran a red light on the double a highway near Alexandria last July. Gibson then crashed into a van carrying 6 people. One passenger, Heather Evans, 14, was killed.

Gibson was eligible for a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison for reckless homicide and assault. Instead, he will serve one year home incarceration and must complete 100 hours of community service, which will include talking to students about the dangers of reckless driving.

The Evans family in court told Gibson they forgave him and their belief in God’s will.
