Records: Driver in bus collision took pills


UVALDE — Court records say a 20-year-old man whose pickup collided with a church minibus last month in rural Texas, killing 13 people, had taken prescripti­on medication before driving and had marijuana in his truck.

The San Antonio Express-News reported that the court records show state troopers found two whole marijuana cigarettes and five partially smoked ones in Jack Dillon Young’s truck after the March 29 crash on a two-lane highway about 75 miles west of San Antonio. An affidavit seeking a blood test says Young also told a trooper he had taken prescripti­on medication including clonazepam and the generic forms of Lexapro and Ambien.

A witness to the crash has said Young told him he was texting while driving.

No charges have been filed in the crash.
