Minneapolis man sentenced in fatal 2020 drunken driving crash

A Minneapolis man was sentenced Friday in connection with a fatal 2020 drunken-driving crash.

Terrance Bugg, 34, was sentenced to four years (48 months) at the St. Cloud Correctional Facility. He received credit for 50 days already served.

Previously, Bugg had pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal vehicular homicide as part of a plea agreement.

The crash happened early the morning of Sept. 12, 2020 at the intersection of Cedar Avenue South and 26th Street East. There, Minneapolis police 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—including Bugg, the driver—suffered injuries not considered to be life-threatening.

A blood draw at the hospital showed Bugg’s blood-alcohol concentration was at 0.15. Surveillance video also reportedly showed the Honda was speeding down 26th Street and ran a red light just before the crash.
