BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Court documents show a state police trooper said he believed a Vermont man charged with driving the wrong way on an interstate and killing five teenagers could have been under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Police say 36-year-old Steven Bourgoin crashed into the teens’ car on Interstate 89 in Williston, then stole a police cruiser and crashed it into several other vehicles Oct. 8. He’s pleaded not guilty to charges that include second-degree murder.

WCAX-TV (http://bit.ly/2eX7VgN ) reports that Trooper Bradley Miller wrote in an affidavit that Bourgoin was disoriented at the scene and unable to tell Miller his name.

Chittenden County Prosecutor T.J. Donovan has said authorities have no evidence Bourgoin was drunk at the time.

He tells WCAX-TV the toxicology report is back but isn’t publicly available.
