Appeal denied over fatal crash

Tron Gorbonosenko

INDIANAPOLIS — A former La Porte County paramedic sentenced in December to 11 years in prison for driving drunk and causing a crash that killed two people has lost his appeal, according to a court order filed Tuesday.

Tron Gorbonosenko was convicted by a jury in La Porte Superior Court 1 in November 2018 of two counts of operating while intoxicated causing death, and two counts of reckless homicide, all Level 5 felonies. He was acquitted of two Level 4 felony OWI counts, each of which stipulated that his blood alcohol content was at least 0.15 percent at the time of the crash.
