SPRINGFIELD, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont man charged with driving the wrong way on an interstate and killing five teenagers and injuring several other people in a series of crashes has been moved from a hospital to prison.

The Department of Corrections say 36-year-old Steven Bourgoin was moved Thursday to the state prison in Springfield.

Police say the 36-year-old Bourgoin crashed into the teens’ car on Interstate 89 in Williston, then stole a police cruiser and crashed it into at least seven other vehicles Oct. 8. He was critically injured.

He pleaded not guilty to five counts of second-degree murder and other charges.

Four of the victims were Harwood Union High School juniors; the fifth attended Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, New Hampshire.
