DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a man has been charged with homicide for driving drunk into oncoming traffic on Interstate 80 in Des Moines and colliding with another vehicle.

Polk County court records say 39-year-old Zlatan Vukasinovic, of Des Moines, is charged with two counts of vehicular homicide: one for reckless driving and one for operating while intoxicated. Jail records say he remained in custody Friday, pending $200,000 bail. The court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him.

The collision occurred a little after 3 a.m. on Nov. 10. The Iowa Department of Public Safety says Vukasinovic's pickup truck was headed east in the westbound lanes when it struck a vehicle driven by 31-year-old Frank Sylalom, who died. He lived in Grimes.

Court records say Sylalom was 16 in 2003 when he lost control of a car he was driving and it crashed into a utility pole in Des Moines, killing three teenagers with him. He was convicted in juvenile court of vehicular homicide.
