State police have arrested a 45-year-old Ville Platte man who caused an accident on U.S. Highway 165 that killed two people earlier this year.

Roy Serie was booked with two counts of vehicular homicide, one count of driving while intoxicated and one count of vehicular negligent injuring.

Troopers say Serie was the driver of a pickup that crossed the median and struck another vehicle -- killing his passenger, Sheila Serie and Shannon Cox, one of two people in the other vehicle.
