Driver in 2019 fatal crash sentenced

A 29-year old man has been sentenced to 90 days as the result of a plea agreement,  on felony charges of criminal vehicular homicide operating a vehicle in a grossly negligent manner.  

Defendant Thomas Crowson was on his mobile phone while traveling westbound on Hwy 95, when his  pickup truck smashed into the rear of a car, waiting to turn off the highway at Access Church July 23, 2019.  The car was pushed into the opposite lane of travel, and collided with an eastbound motorcycle head-on, killing the cyclist, Larry Cooper, 58, North Branch.

This was one of two fatal incidents within about a day of each other,  on Highway 95, between North Branch and Cambridge.  The second fatality was prosecuted in Isanti County.

Crowson, now with a West Concord MN address, will be allowed to serve jail time in Goodhue County at his expense, Judge Dowdal said. He was assessed $585 in fees. The disposition document had no reference to restitution.

The plea agreement involved a downward departure from sentence guidelines. Along with the 90 day jail term, Crowson is under five years of supervised probation and is ordered to do 80 hours of Community Service. A judge’s notation is that he should coordinate  through the MN Dept. of Public Safety to give talks to groups about distracted driving and its consequences.
