Broomfield woman sentenced in accident that killed boyfriend
A Broomfield woman who pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide was sentenced on July 29 to eight years in the Department of Corrections and five years parole, with 159 days credit for time already served.
Britni Bunn, 23, pleaded guilty on June 24 to vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and driving under the influence in connection with an accident that killed her 25-year-old boyfriend, Vincent Gibson.
Bunn left a bar intoxicated Feb. 20 and began to drive to her home in Broomfield. Gibson was in the front passenger seat of Bunn’s Ford Escape.
According to police, Bunn headed north on Sheridan Boulevard in Westminster before entering the eastbound lanes of U.S. 36 going west. She drove in the wrong lane until she struck an Acura coup head-on at 92nd Avenue.
The driver of the Acura, Kendall Stiff, and her passenger, Nicole Leidich, were seriously injured in the accident.
Gibson died at the scene of the collision.
According to police, one hour after the accident Bunn’s blood alcohol content was a .212.
The accident caused the closure of the highway for several hours, and drivers were urged to avoid the area and use Sheridan Boulevard to access U.S. 36 during the morning rush hour.
The Westminster Major Accident Reconstruction Team investigated the accident.
