TUCSON, Ariz. – An Arizona man is facing a manslaughter charge in connection with a collision that killed the sister of former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
Pima County Sheriff's officials in Tucson said Sunday that 24-year-old Jarrad Barnes has been booked on one count each of manslaughter and driving under the influence.
Barnes was arrested immediately after being released Saturday night from a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening.
The sheriff's office did not know if he had an attorney.
Authorities say 77-year-old Ann Day was driving Saturday morning when Barnes' vehicle crossed the median and struck her car head-on.
The collision also led to a truck rear-ending Day's car. That driver also was hospitalized for injuries that were not life-threatening.
Day also is a former Republican state senator and Pima County supervisor.
