LOUISVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Winston County man has been charged following a fatal traffic accident last Tuesday.

Sheriff Jason Pugh says Drew Gordon, 29, is charged with aggravated DUI in the death of Eddie Smith, 59, of Louisville.

The accident happened on Brooksville Road Tuesday night near the intersection with J. Foster Road east of Louisville.

Pugh says eyewitness reports say Gordon was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the accident.

He says Gordon's vehicle collided head-on with Smith's vehicle.

Pugh says debris from the wreck was scattered over a wide area and the engine from Gordon's vehicle was found nearly 200 feet from the crash site.

Gordon is currently free on a $25,000 bond.
