NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Mississippi man accused of causing last week’s deadly collision on Interstate 10 over the Middle Pearl River will be brought back to Louisiana to face charges.

Louisiana State Police said Monday that troopers were en route to Biloxi, Mississippi, to pick up 25-year-old Daniel Coy and bring him to Louisiana to face charges of negligent homicide, reckless operation of a motor vehicle and felony hit-and-run.

Coy, of Gulfport, initially planned to fight extradition. But Trooper Dustin Dwight confirmed Monday, NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/20HNPHn), that Coy had changed his mind.

Coy is accused of trying to pass an 18-wheeler on the shoulder of the highway. In that process, he allegedly hit the truck, which hit another 18-wheeler sending it over the cement barrier and into the water.
