Mississippi man charged with 6 counts of DUI manslaughter

The driver of a SUV that careened off a road and into a rain-swollen creek has been charged with six counts of DUI manslaughter.

Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says bond has been set at $150,000 for 34-year-old Duane John. John remained in the county jail Tuesday. Waddell says John was arrested Monday after his release from Neshoba County General Hospital.

Five children and one adult died in Saturday's accident in Neshoba County.

Waddell says authorities they are awaiting the official toxicology report.

Waddell says the victims apparently drowned after their Dodge Durango left a country road and plunged into a creek 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia. John and two others survived the accident.

The victims of Saturday's crash were members of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians.
