UVALDE, Texas (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a Texas man whom authorities accuse of causing a traffic collision that killed 13 people in a minibus returning from a church retreat in March.
Uvalde (yoo-VAL'-dee) County officials said Thursday that 20-year-old Jack Young was indicted Monday on multiple charges, including intoxication manslaughter.
A National Transportation Safety Board report says Young told investigators he was checking his phone for a text when the crash happened March 29.
He also said he had taken prescription drugs before the crash. Investigators found marijuana in his pickup.
The driver and 12 passengers on the bus from First Baptist Church of New Braunfels were killed. One passenger survived.
Young is being held at the Uvalde County jail. Records don't indicate any attorney for him.
