UINTAH COUNTY, Utah, Dec. 10, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — The woman wanted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs police after causing an accident that killed a Duchesne man in June has turned herself in.

According to Drew Brotherson, a detective with the BIA in Ft. Duchesne, Wilda Annie Manning, 49, was charged with vehicular homicide after the fatal accident on June 3, 2015 near 8500 East on CR-2782 (County Road 2782).

The accident occurred when Manning, who was driving a GMC Yukon, hit the back of a street sweeper sweeping the westbound lane.  As the sweeper left the roadway, it rolled onto its side. The male driver, identified as Steven Goodrich, 25, of Duchesne, was not wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected and pinned under the sweeper.

Manning received only minor injuries and was transported to the hospital. Manning’s blood test results came back positive for impairment, but detectives had not been able to locate her since being released from the hospital.

Manning turned herself in on Wednesday.
