UPDATE: Man now facing negligent homicide charges in DUI crash that killed mother

The Associated Press

LEBANON (AP) — A man charged in connection with a wrong-way crash on a New Hampshire interstate that killed a mother and seriously injured her 4-year-old son is being held on $25,000 cash bail.

State police say 38-year-old Daniel Cowdrey of Hartland, Vermont, was traveling north in the southbound lane of Interstate 89 in Lebanon, New Hampshire, when he struck a vehicle driven by Ellynn Koelsch in "near head-on-fashion" on Wednesday night.

The 34-year-old Koelsch, of North Kingston, Rhode Island, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her son was hospitalized. His condition was not available Thursday.

Cowdrey appeared in Lebanon District Court Thursday and entered no pleas on charges of negligent homicide and aggravated driving under the influence. His next court appearance is June 6.

It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
