PHOENIX (AP) - A Glendale man is accused of manslaughter in the death of his young daughter in an automobile accident.

Phoenix police arrested 30-year-old Palemon Vega-Maqueda on Sunday in the Aug. 8 accident in which his 6-year-old daughter was killed when Vega-Maqueda's car spun out of control and collided with a pickup truck.

According to police, Vega-Maqueda was driving approximately 25 mph above the posted speed limit when he attempted to pass a vehicle and collided with the pickup.

Court documents indicate he doesn't have any attorney yet.
