Broomfield woman pleads guilty to death of boyfriend
A Broomfield woman has pleaded guilty to causing an accident that killed one and seriously injured two back in February.
On June 24, Britni Bunn, 23, pleaded guilty 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.
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.
Bunn remains in custody at the Jefferson County Detention Center on $20,000 bond.
