The Latest: Suspect in crash that killed 5 faced foreclosure
BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Latest on the suspect in the wrong-way crash that killed five high school students in Vermont (all times local):
Court documents say a man suspected of driving the wrong way on a Vermont interstate and causing a fiery crash that killed five teenagers was facing foreclosure and was involved in legal proceedings around domestic and child custody issues.
The documents were filed in a court to support the charges of second-degree murder in the deaths of five teenagers. Their vehicle was struck by a pickup truck that police say was driven by Steven Bourgoin.
The 36-year-old Bourgoin is expected to be arraigned Friday during a court hearing held at the hospital where he is being treated for injuries he suffered in the crash.
Police say Bourgoin crashed into the teens' car and then stole a police cruiser before crashing it into at least seven other vehicles Oct 8.
A man suspected of driving the wrong way on an interstate and causing a fiery crash that killed five teenagers and critically injured himself is expected to be arraigned on five counts of second-degree murder.
Police say 36-year-old Steven Bourgoin crashed into the teens' car in Williston and then stole a police cruiser before crashing it into at least seven other vehicles late Saturday night. Chittenden County state's attorney TJ Donovan has said he "would not classify what occurred on Interstate 89 as an accident."
Bourgoin is to be arraigned Friday in a conference room of the hospital, where his condition has been upgraded from critical to good.
Public defenders working on his case have not returned phone calls or emails seeking comment.
