TULSA — A man was charged in Tulsa County with first-degree manslaughter for reportedly crashing his car and killing his passenger while high on PCP back in January.

Court records show that William Mack Vann was charged in Tulsa County with first-degree manslaughter with an automobile after he was driving southbound on North Boston Avenue in a Chevrolet Trailblazer back on January 14.

Tulsa police said Vann was driving 75 mph in a 25 mph speed zone when he lost control of the car and crashed into a tree.

The front passenger, Phillip Seals, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Police said a toxicology report indicated Vann had opioids, PCP and alcohol in his system at the time of the crash.

Vann was also driving with a suspended license and no insurance, police said.

A warrant was issued for his arrest back on March 29, but he was booked into Tulsa County Jail on Monday.
