Francesca Caterisano, a new member of the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority and junior health and human performance major at APSU, is in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after being involved in a motorcycle crash on Sunday, Sept. 28.
Steven Gibson, Caterisano’s fiancé and driver of the motorcycle, was killed after a car failed to yield while making a left turn.
The man driving the car was 18-year-old Jonathen Olson of Dover, Tenn. Olson made a left turn in front of the motorcycle at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Madison Street.
Olson blew a .071 Blood Alcohol Concentration after admitting to drinking a beer and smoking marijuana. Traces of marijuana were found in Olsen’s car. Olson is charged with multiple charges, including vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. He currently is in the Montgomery County Jail on a $1,065,000 bond.
