A truck driver has entered a plea to charges filed in connection with tragic crashes on Christmas Eve in Ohio that killed a Brighton woman and three family members – one of whom was pregnant.

A semi-truck driven by 29-year-old Dayren Rocubert of Florida was traveling northbound on I-75 in Franklin Township and went through a cable barrier and the median before striking two vehicles the four had been riding in. The three-vehicle crash happened on southbound I-75 in Franklin Township and shut down the freeway for almost seven hours.

63-year-old Kimberly Siegrist of Brighton; her two daughters 33-year-old Karen Boehne and 32-year-old Lauren Hahn; and 32-year-old Jeremy Boehne were all killed in the three-vehicle crash.

Rocubert, who sustained minor injuries, was charged with five counts of vehicular homicide as Karen Boehne was pregnant.

Rocubert appeared in Sidney Municipal Court in Ohio and entered a no-contest plea to a single count of vehicular homicide in exchange for four others being dropped. A pre-sentence interview is set for next week.

Rocubert will be sentenced March 14th.
