New information has been released about the man who police in Williston, Vermont, said caused a deadly crash that killed five teenagers over the weekend.
Court documents filed Monday in Chittenden County Superior Court were obtained by WPTZ-TV and state that driver Steven Bourgoin, 36, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Prosecutors charged Bourgoin with reckless or grossly negligent operation of a vehicle and aggravated operating a vehicle without the owner's consent.
The latest news from around the state
Just before midnight Saturday, investigators say Bourgoing was driving the wrong-way in a pickup truck in the southbound lane of Interstate 89 in Bolton. He crashed into a car carrying five teenagers causing it to burst into flames.
All five teens were killed.
Police said Bourgoin then stole a cruiser and proceeded to strike several other cars, injuring five additional victims.
An affidavit filed detailing parts of the investigation revealed that a Vermont detective, Sgt. Benjamin Katz, said the officer whose cruiser was stolen was the same officer who arrested Bourgoin back in May after an alleged domestic incident with an ex-girlfriend.
The ex-girlfriend told police then that Bourgoin drove around the Williston area with her and their child while speeding and threatening to drive the car into a pond.
Bourgoin has been ordered on $1 million cash bail.
