A Clay County man has charged with four counts of murder after a crash that killed four people last week.
Jason Gibson, 40, of Big Creek was driving a truck that collided with a car carrying the four people who were killed, according to Kentucky State Police.
Gibson was charged with four counts of murder plus first-degree fetal homicide, wanton endangerment, driving under the influence, reckless driving and possession of methamphetamine, according to the Clay County jail’s website.
The Dec. 18 crash killed Judy Ann Pennington-Adams, 63; her granddaughter, Tiffany Anna Williams, 23, who was almost eight months pregnant; Charlene Low Lewis, 59; and Kyson Pennington, who was nearly 2, according to the Clay County coroner. All were from Leslie County.
