Driver in fatal accident in Bethany charged with manslaughter
A Pembroke woman who was reportedly behind the wheel of a 1997 Chevrolet Geo in February when it crossed Route 20 at Molasses Hill Road, Bethany, and was struck by a semi-truck has been indicted by a grand jury on a count of manslaughter in the second degree.
Hannah E. Dibble, 22, appeared in Genesee County Court today to be charged under the 11-count indictment, where she pled not guilty and was released under supervision of Genesee Justice.
Her friend, Alyson D. Krzanak, 18, of Corfu, died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. Suffering serious physical injuries in the collision Feb. 21 were James Scherer, 21, Brandon Danser, 22, and Felecia J. Fazzio, 20.
Dibble was also indicted on counts of vehicular manslaughter in the second degree, vehicular assault in the first degree, three counts of assault in the second degree, three counts of vehicular assault in the second degree, and two counts of DWI.
I don't see any actual prison time in her future, some big ass legal bills for her daddy but no prison. Get real, it is Genesee County.
Nothing good can come of this. You can only hope , especially as a parent , that a lesson would be learned from this , but unfortunately kids feel they are invincible . Obviously all these kids were friends , so they are all feeling a loss , one that she will have to live with for the rest of her life , that to me is more harsh than a prison sentence . I do not condone drinking and driving , and wish there was a solution , but unfortunately there is none . This community has had it's share of heartache caused by this , for they lost classmates and a teacher several years back due to a drunken driver. The best solution , and this has been done before I'm sure , is have the drivers of these unfortunate incidents talk to school kids as they get ready to start driving
cant for the life of me figure out why chris got 3 thumbs down on his entry...he makes perfect sense
First of all, the law was broken and as a result, a life was lost. You can't simply ignore it and hope on some deep personal level a lesson was learned. That's disgustingly irresponsible. As a society as a whole - justice must be served, a punishment put forth, and the consequences made real for such actions. There's plenty of good that can come from adhering to what is just and true. Granted, some feel certain aspects of our justice system have failed us (and it's up to us to stand up and correct it, not whine about it), but we still need to recognize the unlawful actions in our community and hold those accountable.
Also, there's nothing wrong with sympathizing with the offenders from time to time. That's part of what makes us human. A heart felt society rules justly and fairly, an indifferent society is just ruled.
