TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma woman is facing a manslaughter charge after police say she killed a man driving a 1920 Model A car.

Forty-one-year-old Whitney Wheeler was being held at the Tulsa County jail Monday morning. She faces the manslaughter charge and three traffic violations.

Tulsa police say Wheeler was speeding Sunday night when she rear-ended the vintage car driven by 68-year-old Gregory Bush. The crash flipped the Model A and Bush was pronounced dead at the scene. A female passenger in the car was taken to a hospital with injuries that weren’t life threatening.

Wheeler was uninjured.

Online jail records didn’t indicate an attorney for Wheeler.
