Man pleads guilty in fatal 2020 drunk-driving crash
A Minneapolis man has pleaded guilty in connection to a fatal 2020 drunken-driving crash.
Terrance Jacob Bugg, 34, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal vehicular homicide as part of a plea agreement.
Minneapolis police were called to the intersection of Cedar Avenue South and 26th Street East at around 3:40 a.m. on Sept. 12, 2020, for a reported crash. There, they found a Chevrolet Traverse with “severe” damage to the driver’s side and a Honda Pilot with “severe” front-end damage.
The driver of the Chevrolet was pronounced dead. All three in the Honda suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including Bugg, the driver.
A blood draw at the hospital showed his blood-alcohol concentration as 0.15, and surveillance video showed the Honda was speeding down 26th Street and ran a red light just before the crash.
Court records show his sentencing has been set for the morning of Friday, June 24.
