Guy Goes Crazy Drifting And Hits Bus,13 People Died

Thirteen New Braunfels church members were killed in a crash this week, and a witness said it’s because their bus was struck by a man who was texting and driving.

Jack Dillon Young, 20, smashed head-on Wednesday into a bus full of 14 senior citizens returning from a choir retreat.

Jody Kuchler, a witness to the horrific crash, told the San Antonio Express-News that he spoke with Young while he was still pinned in his Dodge pickup after the crash.

‘He said: ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I was texting on my phone,'” said Kuchler. “I told him, ‘Son, do you know what you just did?’ He just kept saying, ‘I’m sorry.'”

San Antonio’s KENS-TV posted video shot by a passenger in Kuchler’s car that showed Young’s pickup drifting onto the highway’s shoulder and across the center line. Kuchler said he called authorities multiple times warning that he feared the driver would cause a head-on crash.

Uvalde County deputies were dispatched on the call, he said, but as the truck approached Real County territory, he called authorities there and was told, “That’s not Real County.”

“I told him we we’re talking safety here and they need to get him off the road,” Kuchler said.

His girlfriend took out her phone and recorded Young’s truck for about 14 minutes, which was directly in front of them going about 80 mph.
