JEFFERSONVILLE, IND. (WDRB) -- A former Jeffersonville garbage truck driver avoids jail time for a fatal crash by taking a plea deal. 45-year-old Roger Crum had faced charges of reckless homicide and three counts of criminal recklessness in the crash that killed 19-year-old Bethany Burrier of Borden, Indiana, in May of 2010.
Crum was sentenced to four years of probation in the case.
Three others were also hurt in that wreck on State Road 60.
A city report says Crum took painkillers and ignored several warning signs before he drove into a construction zone. He told investigators he didn't see three bright orange signs or a flagger stopping traffic.
His truck crashed into a line of traffic, killing Burrier. Her parents were in court on Tuesday, and testified before the deal was accepted. They told Crum to "man up" and take responsibility for his actions. They also spoke about her daughter, who they said was studying to be a U.S. Marshal.
If he hadn't taken the plea deal, Crum would've gone to trial on Tuesday, and could've been sentenced to 15 years in prison if convicted on all of the charges.
