A Tulsa man accused of killing a woman in a head-on crash late last year is scheduled to be in court Wednesday morning.

Hector Hernandez is facing several charges, including first degree manslaughter and leaving the scene of a collision involving property damage.

News On 6 told you in November when police said Hernandez was involved in a hit-and-run accident near 81st Street and Garnett before crashing head-on into another vehicle moments later.

The driver of that vehicle, Jennifer Holt, died at the hospital a short time later.
