Posted: Updated:

JEFFERSON COUNTY -- A Williamson County man faces DUI charges after a deadly crash in June. The Jefferson County State's Attorney says a urine test showed Cole Stevens had cocaine in his system at the time of the crash.

Police say Stevens crossed the median on Interstate 57 near Ina and hit another car head-on while on the drug. Emma Caserotti, 18, died in the crash and her passenger, Tristen Sharp, 18, suffered major injuries.

Prosecutors are awaiting blood work and say more charges against Stevens are possible.
