Man charged with murder for deadly Scott County crash appears before judge

By  | 

Family and friends of 22-year-old Glen Bussell were in the courtroom in Scott County to be at the first court appearance for 58-year-old Carl Lewis, who is charged with murder in this case.

"It's hard to contain my composure to stay calm. There's a lot of things you want to say or do," says Dwayne Bussell, the brother of Glen Bussell.

Carl Lewis is charged with murder and four counts of wanton endangerment. Georgetown Police say on April 3rd, Lewis crossed the center line on U.S.460 in Georgetown hitting three vehicles, including Bussell's, killing him.

Lewis is accused of being under the influence.

He was recently released from jail after posting a $100,000 property bond and remains on house arrest as this case begins to move forward.

This is news that doesn't sit well with the family of Glen Bussell.

"He's out there with his family. My little brother, his life was just beginning and that was our baby. He's gone. He doesn't have a year to spend with us. We don't have another year or two to spend with him. Carl shouldn't have that luxury. My brother doesn't have it," says Dwayne Bussell.

As for this case, it will now be presented to the Scott County Grand Jury for further investigation.

Carl Lewis and his attorney did not wish to comment.

The family of Glen Bussell say they have started a group called Glen's Angels Inc. that will focus on the issue of drinking and driving.

They will be holding a fundraiser on June 25th in honor of Bussell and for Glen's Angels Inc. The fundraiser will be held at Cici's Pizza locations in Georgetown, Lexington, Nicholasville, and Danville at 5:00 on June 25th. The family says Cici's Pizza plans to donate a percentage of their sales to Glen's Angels Inc.

They will also be holding a fundraiser on Saturday June 26th at the Cici's Pizza in Richmond from 5-9 p.m.

The Bussell family says in the future they also plan to hold wrestling show fundraisers to honor Glen Bussell, including on April 3rd of every year, the day he was killed in the crash.
