Ashley Man Pleads Guilty in Fatal Crash
Saturday Jun 17, 2017 2:11pm
Angola, IN

An Ashley man pleaded guilty in connection with a fatal vehicle crash.

Chet Gilbert, age 38, admitted to causing serious injury operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, a Level 6 felony, in a hearing this week. The charge was a second, lower felony filed, which allowed the dismissal of the original charge, a Level 4 felony.

Gilbert was driving in the early morning hours of June 21, 2015, when it struck the rear of a motorcycle driven by Brian Platten, age 52, who was from North York, Ontario, Canada. The crash occurred on Interstate 69 just a few miles north of Ashley at the 343.5 mile marker.

Gilbert's guilty plea will now cancel a trial that would have lasted throughout next week in Steuben Circuit Court.

He will serve a maximum jail term of 2 1/2 years.
