Brian Boyd, Who Hit & Killed ‘Gone Girl’ Actress Lisa Banes With His Scooter, Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison
On Wednesday, New York State Supreme Court Judge Gregory Carro sentenced Brian Boyd to up to three years in prison for hitting and killing the Gone Girl actress Lisa Banes.
Boyd, 27, ran a red light, struck the actress, 65, on a crosswalk with his scooter in Manhattan’s Upper West Side and left the scene which led to the death of the actress in June 2021. He was arrested in August 2021.
Boyd pled guilty for the hit-and-run incident in September. He attempted to claim in court that he didn’t act recklessly. “I did beep my horn,” he said. “I did slow down.”
Assistant District Attorney Erin LaFarge said Boyd’s attempt to rescind his plea showed he refused to show regret.
“He has not learned anything from this experience, and that is a terrifying thought,” she said.
The Judge said the city “has a problem” with the motorized bikes and wants drivers of unregistered and unlicensed bikes to know they can go to prison when they do hurt people.
