    HEREFORD, Md. -- Tim Wheatley, business editor of The Baltimore Sun, was killed in a car accident, and his 9-year-old daughter is seriously injured, according to Baltimore County police.

    Wheatley was making a left turn Monday morning about two miles from his home when a UPS truck struck the driver's side of his vehicle, police spokesman Bill Toohey said.

    The 48-year-old Wheatley died at the scene. His daughter, who was in the front passenger seat, was taken to a hospital.

    Toohey said a traffic light controls the intersection and it appears to be working. Police are investigating to determine whether either driver ran a red light.

    Wheatley started at The Sun in 2006 as sports editor. He moved to the business department earlier this year during a newsroom reorganization.
