Jury trial scheduled for man charged with vehicular homicide
Court records show a Minneapolis man charged with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide will face a jury.
During an omnibus hearing for 34-year-old Terrance Bugg on Tuesday morning, a demand for a jury trial was made.
As 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS previously reported, Bugg is charged with Criminal Vehicular Homicide – Operate a Motor Vehicle with an Alcohol Concentration of 0.08 or more, as well as Criminal Vehicular Homicide – Operate Vehicle with Negligence – Under Influence of Alcohol. His bail was set at $150,000 in November, which was more than a year after a fatal Minneapolis crash.
Police were called to the intersection of Cedar Avenue South and 26th Street East in Minneapolis during the morning hours of Sept. 12, 2020. A criminal complaint states officers found a Chevrolet Traverse with severe damage to the driver’s side, as well as a Honda Pilot with severe front-end damage.
Bugg was identified as the driver of the Honda. Two women, ages 26 and 35, were also injured. Bugg’s blood alcohol concentration was said to be 0.15, according to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.
Meanwhile, a man in his 50s was identified as the driver of the Chevy. He died at the scene.
Both of the vehicles left the road and crashed into a nearby business, according to the complaint.
Bugg’s trial is scheduled to begin the morning of Monday, March 14.
