Broken Arrow Police arrested a man they say caused a fatal crash in Broken Arrow on Monday.

Police say the victim was doing nothing wrong when an impaired driver veered into her lane and they crashed head on.

The victim has been identified as 71-year-old Vivian Louise McGuire of Tulsa.

Police booked 59-year-old Isiah Keys into the Tulsa County jail Tuesday evening.  He was moved there from BA's city jail.

Keys was jailed on complaints of first-degree manslaughter after former conviction of a felony and driving under the influence of drugs.  Police say he has a long history of traffic stops, but none for driving under the influence.  He is being held on a $100,000 bond.

In his arrest report, police state Isiah Keys had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet. Police said he appeared to be under the influence of intoxicants.

Officers say Isiah Keys was driving south on Aspen when he crossed the center line and hit a northbound car head-on. The woman in that car was killed.  Police say the 5:45 p.m.crash caused a chain reaction with at least three other vehicles with several people suffering minor injuries.
