A man was arrested Monday after another man was killed in a northeast Oklahoma City traffic accident, police reported.

Dustin Shane Hall, 31, was arrested on complaints of driving under the influence of drugs and causing a fatality accident and being without a state driver's license, police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

Ronald Banton, 27, was driving about 11:30 a.m. eastbound on NE 10 near Standish Avenue, when he stopped to turn left, she said.

Hall was driving behind Banton and looked down. When he looked back up, he crashed into Banton's car, Wardlow said.

Banton was taken to OU Medical Center, where he died, Wardlow said.

Hall was treated and released at St. Anthony Hospital. He was taken to the Oklahoma County jail and is being held in lieu of $6,000 bail, a jail official said.
