Woman Pleads Guilty in Triple Fatality

MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A western Kentucky woman has entered a
guilty plea to three counts of manslaughter in a fatal traffic
crash.
The Messenger of Madisonville reports Meagan Gibbs agreed
Thursday to an eight-year sentence for the deaths of 34-year-old
Penny Garrison and 12-year-old Jordan Duke of Dawson Springs, and
64-year-old Beverly Lopez of St. Charles.
The 23-year-old Gibbs admitted in Hopkins Circuit Court that she
had been driving under the influence of pain medication the night
of the June 9 crash. Prosecutor David Massamore says the Gibbs
vehicle collided head on with a pickup driven by Garrison.
The collision occurred on Kentucky 109, about 2 miles north of
Dawson Springs.
