    I was just reading about this in the DM. Absolutely horrific and preventable......I expect he was extremely drunk/under the influence of a substance. So sorry for all those who died and were injured. Senseless.

    Vermont wrong way driver in stolen cruiser kills 5 teens on I-89

    WILLISTON, Vt. -
    10/09/2016
    A horrific crash has left five people dead, including four students from Harwood High School.

    Police say the crash involved a wrong-way driver and a stolen police cruiser. Police say it all began just before midnight when they received a 911 call that a Toyota pickup was heading north in the southbound land on Interstate 89 in the Bolton area.

    State Police say a car with five teenagers inside was hit by the wrong-way driver's truck and burst into flames, killing all of the teens. A Williston Police Department officer was the first to arrive on the scene and ran towards the scene. The officer pulled a female victim from the engulfed vehicle, and as he was attempting to put out the fire, State Police say 36-year-old Steven Bourgoin stole the officer's cruiser and sped south at a high rate of speed with lights flashing. Police have yet to confirm if Bourgoin or a second driver was responsible for killing the teens.

    Very sad case. I will be shocked if he wasn't on drugs and/or drunk when he did this. He is probably going to wish he was killed in the accident when he sobers up and realizes what he has done.

    When are people going to really be held accountable for their actions? I don't care if they were under the influence and "didn't mean for it to happen." If you kill 5 kids, you should go to prison for life. (In my world, you'd get the DP but that's just IMHO). I can't even imagine what the families are going through. Rest in peace, dear sweet young people with your lives ahead of you. And prayers for their loved ones.

    Thank you for the comprehensive post. My heart breaks.

    Immediately reminded of Diane Schuler, 2009 Taconic Parkway. Suicide? or is this case, attempted suicide by vehicle? IMO. IDK. RIP dear souls. Incomprehensible.

    Vermont flags fly at half-staff in honor of 5 teens

    Oct 10, 2016

    http://www.mynbc5.com/article/vermon...-teens/5063662

    Gov. Peter Shumlin has ordered flags in Vermont to be lowered to half-staff in honor of five teens who died over the weekend.


    The teens were killed around midnight Saturday when the car they were in was hit head-on on I-89 in Williston.

    Eli Brookens, 16, of Waterbury, Janie Cozzi, 15, of Fayston, Liam Hale, 16, of Fayston, Mary Harris, 16, of Moretown, and Cyrus Zschau, 16, of Moretown, were pronounced dead at the scene.

    Brookens, Hale, Harris and Zschau were juniors at Harwood Union High School in Moretown. Cozzi was a sophomore at Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, New Hampshire.

    Police said Steven Bourgoin, 36, of Williston, was driving northbound in the southbound lanes and slammed into the teens' car.



    The flags will be lowered at all state buildings Monday and remain at half-staff until Thursday.

    “The loss of five young Vermonters in such a senseless tragedy is heartbreaking," Shumlin said. "Vermont is a community, and today we share the sadness and loss of the families and friends of these teens. My deepest sympathies are with their loved ones.”
    "Marcelle and I join the entire Harwood community, and all Vermonters, in mourning the loss of these five young lives," Sen. Patrick Leahy said. "We were shocked and deeply saddened by this unspeakable and unimaginable tragedy. We want their families to know that we are prayerful about their grief and their suffering."

    Vermont Secretary of Education Rebecca Holcombe also issued a statement expressing her condolences.

    I underlined the 2 names in the quoted post that are are wrong here. Hoyt and Elizabeth Battey were not involved in the crash, they were not in the vehicle. Their son Lucas was driving the vehicle that belonged to them.


    Source= http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/s...rash/91844894/

    From the link;
    Elizabeth Battey, who was listed among the injured, clarified on Monday morning that she and her husband were not involved in the crash, but that their son, Lucas Battey, 26, of Montpelier was driving the car that belonged to them at the time of the crash. Lucas Battey was uninjured, his mother said Monday. Vermont State Police are working to verify the information.
