Baltimore County police say the business editor of The Baltimore Sun has been killed in a car accident and his 9-year-old daughter is seriously injured.

Police spokesman Bill Toohey says Tim Wheatley was making a left turn Monday morning about two miles from his home when a UPS truck his the driver's side of his vehicle.

The 48-year-old Wheatley died at the scene. His daughter, who was in the front passenger seat, was taken to a hospital.

Toohey says a traffic light controls the intersection and it appears to be working. Police are investigating to determine whether either driver ran a red light.

Wheatley started at The Sun in 2006 as sports editor. He moved to the business department earlier this year during a newsroom reorganization.
