Does anyone know what drugs the man who hit him was on when he was hit? He was charged with Vehicular homicide, D.U.I.-Drugs and following too closely but that's all that ive seen on reports. The Man had Polio as a child and used that as an excuse for never slowing down before striking Jacob and pushing his vehicle under a tractor trailer. Could it be pain pills for the disease? Or high? And if so on what? It absolutely destroyed the family and it breaks my heart.

I have known him all of my life & is a piece of $hit & has always made excuses. He has always been perfectly capable of chasing women, drinking, check bouncing,... just an all around Bad Person!! I am sure he will try to fall back on some excuses to try & get out of this too! I hope he goes to jail & has to suffer!!

i read where Johnny Cook was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Captiva .$25.000 plus crossover vehicle too. How is it a handicap person can have such a nice vehicle? I hope he goes to jail & rots!

I don't care if it is drugs or alcohol. The man should have never gotten behind the wheel of a vehicle. People who do drugs and alcohol are idiots to drive a vehicle. I don't give a crap what he was on, he should rot in jail for taking an innocent life. I don't know this man nor do I care to know this man. He is a piece of SHIT as far as I'm concerned.
