(PORTLAND) - A truck driver accused of causing a crash that killed four Taylor University students and a university employee is getting extra money for his defense.

A judge has approved money for a crash analyst expert to aid trucker Robert Spencer's attorney. He will have a little more than four thousand dollars to hire the expert to analyze the April 2006 crash.

The chief deputy prosecutor also thinks the defense review is appropriate.

Spencer is charged with five counts of reckless homicide and four counts of criminal recklessness. Authorities say he fell asleep behind the wheel after having driven more than nine hours.

He has been jailed since his arrest in September.
