A Virginia man is facing a dozen years in prison for a drunk driving crash that killed one of his passengers.
Andre Michael Glenn, 27, of Sterling, Virginia, pleaded guilty Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license.
On February 20, 2017, Glenn attended a party at a restaurant with some friends and co-workers. As the party wrapped up, he offered to take a few people home.
According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, Glenn was driving northbound on Route 28 when he allowed his jeep to drift to the right. Glenn hit his brakes to avoid hitting a concrete divider, but it was too late.
Glenn's jeep crashed into the lane divider anyway and veered to the left. He then overcorrected to the right, causing the jeep to roll over several times.
When deputies arrived at the scene at about 2 a.m., the found two women who had been ejected from the jeep. One of them was Gabrielle Miranda Perry. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The other woman suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
Glenn and another male passenger were not seriously injured.
