BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - A teen driver accused of pinning a man between two parked vehicles, severing his legs, in Boulder told police was using his phone at the time of the crash and had recently used drugs.

According to an arrest affidavit, 19-year-old Dylan Gottschling told investigators that he was looking at his phone to pick some music Monday evening when he crashed. However, a witness told police that he heard Gottschling telling someone on the phone that he was responding to a text at the time.

According to police, he told police he had used heroin Friday and took the anti-anxiety drug Xanax Sunday to help him come off the high from heroin.

Gottschling consented to a blood test and a search of his phone. He doesn’t have a lawyer listed in court documents yet.
