FARMINGTON, MO (KFVS) -

A St. Francois County man has pleaded guilty to charges in connection to a crash that killed two people.

Court papers show Jeremy Hansell, 33, pleaded guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the first degree on Wednesday at the Saint Francois County Courthouse.

The deadly crash happened on Highway 67 on November 17, 2011.

According to St. Francois County Coroner, 41-year-old Rick Mowery of Ironton had just gotten off work from Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center in Bonne Terre. He was driving south when Mowery collided head on with a car driven by Hansell around 11:10 p.m. 

Hansell was reportedly driving the wrong way on U.S. 67 when the vehicles collided. A passenger in his car, 28-year-old Jackelin Rincon of Bonne Terre, was thrown from the car. According to the coroner, some bystanders pulled Hansell out of the car just before it caught fire.

Mowery died at the scene. Rincon died at a Bonne Terre hospital. Hansell had received serious injuries. 

At the time, Hansell was suspected of driving under the influence. 

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Hansell was arrested on two felony counts of vehicular manslaughter and a charge of driving while intoxicated.

He was released at the time to medical personnel because of his injuries.  He was later taken to the St. Francois County Jail.
