A Hancock County driver recently released from jail on a DUI charge has been arrested again after drinking-and-driving and injuring three people in a head-on crash.

Desmond Coogans, 59, has been arrested and charged with DUI leading to serious injury or death.

According to multiple news outlets, Coogans had been driving his truck in the wrong direction on U.S. 90 when he crashed head-on into an SUV, Wednesday.
