Young said he consumed the prescription medications clonazepam, Ambien and Lexapro and was distracted by his cellphone before the
crash, according to a Texas Department of Public Safety affidavit for a search warrant obtained by KENS-TV.
Several medications were found in the front seat of Young’s pickup, including 29 doses of the sedative zolpidem in a bottle,
30 pills of the antidepressant escitalopram and empty bottles of the anti-anxiety drug clonazepam and prazosin, a drug to treat
high blood pressure, investigator Scott Hewitt stated, according to KENS-TV. Several marijuana cigarettes, most of them partially
smoked, were reportedly also found in the pickup's center console.

He was almost comatose then. I hope they charge him with 13 counts of intoxication manslaughter.
that's irresponsible writing. think about your wife's, purse and what could be written about her after an accident, your mother's. Is that what you would want?
He admitted to taking the Ambien and Lexapro. As far as I know that's all. So yeh, he would have been pretty much asleep, and should be charged with some sort of DUI or something. But I haven't read anywhere that tox results have come back or that he had taken anything else or smoked the pot that day. None of the cops said, "they were still smoking" or "they were warm" or whatever....
it's obvious the kid has a problem and needs help. And yes, I hope he goes to prison for a long time. But, I also would like to hold the media to the truth.
I would like to hold the media to the truth also, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. They didn't say that he ingested all of the drugs listed, but even with the ones he admitted to taking, he had no business behind the wheel. I have no problem with the contents of my truck being listed on a police report, even if I am involved in an accident, nor would my wife. Maybe we are fortunate that we don't have to take a lot of medications, and none that render us incapable of operating a vehicle safely. If we are prescribed anything like that we stay home. With the prescription drugs listed, along with the marijuana, I would say this "kid" has a definite drug problem. If all of the prescription drugs are in his name, his doctor needs to be investigated. JMHO
