(CAMERON, Mo.) A Cameron woman is charged with involuntary manslaughter after an accident that killed a Cameron man Monday evening.

The Clinton County clerk's office said Jacqueline McQuinn, 53, of Cameron was charged with a Class B felony of first-degree involuntary manslaughter. According to court records, McQuinn's blood alcohol content was .095 hours after she was arrested. A second test an hour later showed a blood alcohol content of .071.

The accident killed Charles Cooper, 72. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Cooper's utility vehicle was hit by a McQuinn's car when he drove onto Highway 69 south of Cameron around 5 p.m.

McQuinn was not injured.

According to court documents, McQuinn was convicted of DWI in Clinton County in 2006.
