Andrew Gans, the Ohio Turnpike driver whose speeding car allegedly caused a Thanksgiving crash that killed a Toledo couple, pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to aggravated vehicular homicide during an arraignment today in Sandusky County Common Pleas Court.

His $1 million cash or surety bond was continued over from a lower court.

The 24-year-old Kent man faces four counts of aggravated vehicular homicide after a Thanksgiving night turnpike crash that killed Wilbur and Margaret McCoy of Toledo.

Authorities said Mr. Gans’ vehicle was speeding at more than 125 miles per hour when it struck the McCoys’ minivan.

Mr. Gans’ attorney Terrence Rudes could not be reached for immediate comment.

How could anyone live sanely after doing something like that..that horri..and even worse trying to deny it...well who else was driving the car and going that fast..really?


Who's the 1st to speak up and say you can't plead innocent? Huh? Come on now! Let's beat the dead horse and tell everyone how you plead guilty or not guilty, etc! Come on now! Don't be shy! Who's the one to point out any misspellings? Huh? Come, on don't be shy! We know you can do it! Me and that dipwad Kingsin are waiting!




That would be "huh + 2"- how in the heck did I get dragged into this anyways? Geez, just going through the stories, minding my own business, and POW!- somebody with the name of WASP (showing he is already deranged) just gives it to me! Love ya out there too fan club!


I'm waiting for truckin's comment. Should be a great one. Prolly something about how people can drive that fast if they know what they're doing or something.


Driving 125 mph does not constitute insanity.


Try it, sometime. The adrenaline alone will make you either very aware or insane.
