Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
A 32-year-old woman was arrested and booked into jail on charges of manslaughter and driving under the influence after a collision that killed a motorcyclist Tuesday.
Tempe police said Veronica Muckerman was driving a black GMC Yukon just before 6 p.m. when she turned left at the intersection of Broadway and Rural roads in front of the motorcycle driven by Elsa Tovar, 21. Tovar was taken to a nearby hospital where she died from her injuries, according to the Tempe Police Department.
Police said Muckerman is suspected of drinking and driving and had her 9 and 12-year-old daughters inside the Yukon. The children were not hurt, police said.
