Joseph Jay Ford, 27, of Wyoming was charged in 63rd District Court with two counts of operating while impaired causing death.
At 9:51 p.m., deputies say Ford was driving northbound on Patterson Avenue and collided with a westbound vehicle driven by 23-year-old Caledonia man Eric Fischer. The two vehicles then collided with an eastbound semi-truck, killing Fischer and his 20-year-old Andrea Herrera of Lowell.
Both Ford and the 50-year-old driver of the semi suffered non-life threatening injuries. Ford is currently held on $50,000 bond and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 23.
