PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving charges after two people were killed in a car he hit while going the wrong way on a highway.

Twenty-four-year-old Joel Norman of Webster is being held on $100,000 bail after his arraignment Wednesday in Providence Superior Court on charges of drunken driving resulting in death, driving to endanger resulting in death and possession of cocaine. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Sept. 3.

The victims were 21-year-old Tiffany Sical of Providence, who was driving the car Norman struck, and her passenger, 23-year-old Bryan Rodriguez-Solis of Central Falls. Family members say the couple planned to marry in September.

The crash occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. April 5 on Route 6 near Providence.

Norman’s attorney, Robert Mann, declined to comment.
