drunk driving crash on I-10Jeremy Anthony Olivier was killed in a head-on collision on Interstate 10 on Saturday night.

According to police, Derek Paul Cooper was traveling the wrong direction on I-10 westbound when he collided with Olivier at the top of the Ruth Street overpass. Cooper has been arrested on a DWI charge.

Olivier, a resident of Lake Charles, was pronounced dead at the scene. Cooper was taken to local hospital for blood testing and could face more charges; his condition was not revealed.
