LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A Lufkin man pleaded guilty to driving drunk and seriously injuring two people in a wreck, accepting a eight-year prison sentence Friday.

Jacob Nathaniel Jordan, 31, pleaded guilty to two counts of intoxicated assault in Judge Gerald Goodwin's courtroom.

Hudson Police arrested Jordan in November after a blood sample came back and showed he was driving with a blood-alcohol level at three times the legal limit in a car accident on FM 706 on Sept. 18.

Jordan injured two people in the wreck. Both suffered bone fractures and one victim was in the hospital for a month.

Jordan has at least three DWI convictions on his record, which likely led to him accepting a prison sentence.
