The Sheriff's Department reported that Bobby Frazier was driving his Ford F-150 inebriated and crossed the center line of the highway. He then hit another pick-up truck head on, killing all four people in the vehicle.
John Michael Boone, 28, his children 2-year-old Michael Tyler and 3-year-old Jordan Michelle, and a family friend, Thomas Reno Hardwick, 29, were killed, deputies say.
Investigators charged Bobby Frazier, 47, of Louisa, Ky., with being intoxicated at the time. Frazier had at least 8 prior drunken driving arrests in Kentucky, and his most recent punishment was a fine and 30 days in jail.
Frazier was taken to a local hospital and after he is treated and released he will be arrested and charged with 9th offense DUI and four counts of DUI causing death.
Deputies reported that the children were in child safety seats and were properly restrained in the Chevy Colorado.
