ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) _ A northwest Missouri man has been arrested for allegedly driving drunk and 110 mph on the wrong side of a Missouri highway before a head-on crash that injured two people.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that the crash happened Wednesday night on Interstate 29 about 5 miles (8 kilometers) north of St. Joseph in Andrew County.
