Son of ex-Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber critically injured in car crash
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The 18-year-old son of former Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber has been critically injured in a car crash at the Oregon Coast.
State Police Lt. Bill Fugate says Logan Kitzhaber of Portland was driving a Toyota Prius that sideswiped a motorhome after crossing the centerline on Highway 101 near Lincoln City.
Fugate says Kitzhaber was flown to OHSU Hospital in Portland after the Fourth of July crash. A hospital spokeswoman said Tuesday the teenager was not listed in the patient directory.
The motorhome was driven by a 67-year-old man from Port Angeles, Washington. He and a passenger were taken to a coastal hospital for injuries that are not life-threatening.
Fugate says the investigation isn’t over, and detectives want to hear from anyone who witnessed the Prius before the collision.
