Being as that's a college atmosphere, I wonder how much of that sleep walking was alcohol induced. I find myself in all sorts of strange places I didn't start out at after a heavy night of partying/drinking.
Actually, none of it. Everyone on campus assumed the same thing, but the toxicity report showed the kid was clean. He had a history of sleep walking. This time he just walked in the wrong direction.
Back on topic, The report above doesn't mention it, but from what I heard, the REAL reason the plane crashed was because the instructor was doing a simulated engine out on take-off. I guess the instructor had been known for having students perform a normal take-off and then would reach over and throttle back one of the engines, forcing the student to react. Unfortunatley, this time the student react quick enough. However, this is all "through the grapevine" type information, so you can take it with a grain of salt.
