March or April Trial Possible in Deadly Vermont Wrong-Way Crash

Five teenagers were killed in the 2016 crash

A judge is pressing lawyers to complete their work so that a March or April trial can be scheduled for a Vermont man facing murder charges in a wrong-way highway crash that killed five teenagers in 2016.

Steven Bourgoin has pleaded not guilty to five counts of second-degree murder for the interstate crash in Williston, Vermont.

His lawyer, Robert Katims, has said he would use an insanity defense.

In a status conference on Monday, Judge Kevin Griffin set deadlines for lawyers to complete their remaining depositions. A state prosecutor said Bourgoin's co-workers and medical personnel that treated him after the crash are being interviewed this week.

Four Harwood Union High School students and a friend who attended Kimball Union Academy in New Hampshire were killed in the crash.
