Re: Wreck kills local church goers

NTSB report on crash released. Recommends buses like the one in the crash be required to have seat/shoulder belts.

Young was indicted on manslaughter charges and pleaded no contest. He's expected to be sentenced next month.
Hopefully the judge will lock him behind bars for a very long time.

UVALDE, Texas - Jack Dillon Young, the 21-year-old man charged in the bus crash that killed 13 members of a New Braunfels church last spring, pleaded no contest Thursday.

Young also waived his right to a jury trial and faces anywhere from 2 to 270 years in prison for 13 counts of intoxication manslaughter to be served consecutively. His punishment phase is set for Nov. 7-9.
Thirteen innocent people are still dead, and yet this human debris gets to enjoy his freedom for another 4 months before he is sentenced? With the screwed up way our justice system works these days he'll probably get 2 years probation instead of the minimum 150 years in prison he deserves.

We're getting a little bit of a half of a story, if they can't tell us everything, then tell nothing and wait. I'm not sure that evidence is public record, I didn't think so, I think some police officer reported this.
At his point, what difference does it make? Thirteen innocent people are dead at the hands of a severely impaired adult behind the wheel of a truck. Where the prescription drug bottles were located in the truck's front seat is of little concern.

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.
:headscratch You're defending the indefensible. Straw man argument all you want, but this "kid" (not, he's 20 years old and an adult) killed 13 people with his deliberate actions. Whether he had a joint lit and smoking it at the time of the crash in immaterial.
You are correct, tox results have not been made public, but I don't see how it's relevant based upon the evidence recovered at the scene and his own admissions of the pills he had taken. Texting while driving was the least of his offenses.

I suspected either texting or impairment via alcohol/drugs.

Re: Wreck kills local church goers

NTSB to investigate. DPS saying truck crossed center line and hit bus.

Earlier reports said the a motorist called 911 before the crash to report the truck driving erratically.

Very sad, condolences to all of the families and to their church family.
