TAZEWELL, Tenn.— A man charged in a DUI-related crash that killed a Claiborne County couple last year had five drugs in his system at the time including one he did not have a prescription for, testimony in his case revealed Thursday.

David H. Crumley, of Ewing, Va., was driving a 2010 Chevy sedan westbound along state Highway 63, just west of Quarry Road, the evening of Nov. 5, when he crossed the center line and struck an oncoming 2011 Toyota, Assistant District Attorney General Jared Effler said in a bond hearing for Crumley in Claiborne County Circuit Court.

The head-on crash killed Ronald and Wilma McNew, both 63, of Speedwell, Tenn.

During Thursday's hearing, a Tennessee Highway Patrol trooper said Crumley was transported by medical helicopter to a hospital. He also testified he took a blood sample from Crumley after the crash.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation crime lab specialist Michael Tiller testified the sample showed traces of Xanax, an over-the-counter sleeping aid, and oxycodone, which he did not have a prescription for. The sample also showed traces of two types of medicine he said are often given to patients in an emergency room.

A Claiborne County grand jury indicted Crumley on Feb. 22 on one count of DUI and two counts of vehicular homicide in connection with the crash. Bond had been set at $250,000, but on Thursday attorney Mike Hatmaker asked Criminal Court Judge E. Shayne Sexton to reduce the bond, saying his client was not a flight risk because he had family in Claiborne County.

Sexton reduced the bond to $150,000.

Karen, why will you not tell all the facts of the case? Why has he not been charged criminally? The only court hearing that is pending is the 18 million dollar wrongful death suit you and your family have filed. It’s time to start healing and stop harassing and stalking. It will all come out in the wrongful death suit hearing, even all the skeletons in your closets. It’s not as one sided as you want everyone to believe. As far as facebooks go, anyone can post anything they like, it doesn't make it the truth.
