    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    An area resident told the Uvalde Leader-News she was behind one of the vehicles involved in the crash, and had contacted law enforcement to report reckless driving.
    Emph. mine

    Hmmm... texting ? Drunk ? Heart attack ?
    The article doesn't say which vehicle she'd reported.

    Rest in peace to the lives lost !!

    So many innocent lives lost....truly sad. I feel for the woman who survived....that would be so difficult to be the lone person to make it out of such a horrific wreck and to lose so many acquaintances. God bless her - I hope she recovers quickly.

    Witness: Driver in crash that killed 13 in Texas admitted texting before collision.

    What was so important that a driver decided to divert his concentration from driving on 65 mph speed limit road to focus on TEXTING.

    Updating relationship status on FB? Retweeting a knock-knock joke? Checking Instagram or Snapchat?

    Even the text(s) related to an important, timely matter, WHY, WHY, WHY couldn't the driver pull off, waaaaay off, the road before texting?

    {ETA: from same link
    "Department of Public Safety Sgt. Conrad Hein declined to comment on Friday on the cause of the crash or if texting might have played a role. But officials have said the truck driver appeared to have crossed the center line."
    So per ^ LE, texting did not necessarily cause the crash, but pickup crossing center line into oncoming traffic seems imo to be a critical factor cause of crash. And pickup driver saying (I'm presuming true ATM) "I'm sorry, I was texting" supports his texting as causing crash. JM2cts.}

    A driver texting is not just a danger to self, passengers in same vehicle, and the vehicle itself. Horrible, just horrible. JM2cts.

    Kuchler said he witnessed the crash and afterward, he checked on both the bus and the truck and was able to speak with the driver, who has been identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety as 20-year-old Jack Dillon Young, of Leakey, Texas.
    Emphasis mine

    Well I'm sure this JY didn't wake up that morning and plan to kill 13 innocent people....
    And yet... I'm so disgusted.

    Manslaughter charges at least !

    Wonder if the medication was actually prescribed to HIM ?
    And was he high on marijuana as well ?
    So was he even texting at all; or just higher than a kite ?

    My opinion is that the charges should be upgraded. Let him sit and rot for a good number of years in prison and write letters to the families of his victims ; telling them how sorry he is.




    Just angry for those families who do not have the privilege of seeing their loved ones ever again.
