A Muskogee County driver was arrested on manslaughter and DUI complaints early Wednesday after a crash outside Porum in which one of her passengers died.

Heather Nicole White, 31, of Porum apparently smelled of alcohol after she crashed her 2002 Ford Mustang convertible through a ditch and into a barbed wire fence about 2:55 a.m., Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers reported.

One of her passengers, Gary Lee Dobbs, 67, of Stigler died at the scene, troopers reported. The other passenger was not injured.

White was taken to a hospital as a precaution and later booked into jail on complaints of first-degree manslaughter and DUI. She was being held without bond.

Neither White nor her passengers were wearing seat belts, troopers reported.

"We've been able to get by with that so far because the citizens of Tulsa have sucked it up and done the right thing," Mayor G.T. Bynum said at a Thursday news conference. "But we're moving into flu season. We're moving into cold winter months when more people will not have the option of al fresco dining and spending as much time outside. More people will be inside, and with that comes much greater risk."
