Apr 16, 2014 - SENTENCING HEARING FOR DRUNK DRIVER GUILTY IN DEATH OF BRANDON THOMAS

 

Ryan Jordan Gibson, 23 of Calgary pleaded guilty to driving over .08 causing bodily harm and a similar charge causing death in the fatal collision Dec. 6, 2012 that took the life of Brandon Thomas.

In a joint statement of facts, Crown prosecutor Ron Simenik said Gibson had been with friends at a Cochrane residence before deciding to drive back to his southwest Calgary home.

After using the northbound lane of Hwy. 22 to pass two trucks, Gibson remained in the wrong lane and soon forced two vehicles off the road, injuring a 23-year-old woman.

Moments later, he crashed his 2006 Chevy pickup head-on into Thomas’s Subaru Impreza.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for April 16.
