Broomfield woman Britni Bunn pleads guilty in wrong-way DUI crash that killed her boyfriend

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. - A 23-year-old Broomfield woman pleaded guilty Monday in a wrong-way head-on crash that killed her boyfriend and injured two other people in Westminster.

Britni Bunn pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide, vehicular assault and driving under the influence.

Investigators say Bunn was driving westbound in the eastbound lanes of U.S. 36 at 3 a.m. on Feb. 20 when she crashed into an Acura driven by Kendall Stiff.

Bunn's boyfriend, Vincent Michael James Gibson, 25, was killed in the crash. Stiff and Nicole Leidich, a passenger in Stiff’s car, were also seriously injured.

Police reports indicate Bunn told investigating officers she had five margaritas before the crash. Police said they also found cocaine in her vehicle.

7NEWS reported earlier that Bunn appeared to have posted several pictures of alcoholic drinks at a bar on her Facebook page just hours before the fatal crash.

The night before the early morning crash, Bunn or someone using her login uploaded a cell phone photo to her Facebook page showing a bar table with a Corona beer and what appeared to be a margarita and the comment, "Round two biaaaaaAtCH."

Another photo showed a Corona bottle pouring into a margarita glass with the comment, "YessssssssssssssssssS."

Bunn remains in the custody of the Jefferson County Detention Center on $20,000 bond. Her sentencing hearing has been scheduled for July 29 at 8:30 a.m.
