A 24-year-old Tulsa man is charged with manslaughter following a deadly wreck earlier this year. Justin D. Brummett is in the Tulsa County Jail on a $50,000 bond for first-degree manslaughter by automobile.

Authorities say Brummett was westbound on 86th Street North near Highway 11 in April when he crossed the center line and hit a pickup head-on. The pickup driver, 18-year-old Austin Crawford of Sperry, was thrown from his vehicle.

He died at a short time later at a Tulsa hospital, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. 

Brummett turned himself in Friday morning, October 6, 2017.
