UPDATE: Man police say killed a mother in DUI crash held on $1M cash bail

The Associated Press

LEBANON (AP) — Bail has been set at $1 million cash for a man charged in connection with a wrong-way crash on Interstate 89 in Lebanon, New Hampshire, that killed a mother and seriously injured her 4-year-old son.

State police say 38-year-old Daniel Cowdrey of Hartland, Vermont, was traveling north in the southbound land of I-89 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 taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center with serious injuries. His condition was not available Thursday.

Cowdrey suffered minor injuries. He was arrested at the hospital and charged with felony aggravated driving while under the influence of alcohol.

He was expected to be represented by a public defender at his arraignment Thursday.
