Bend driver arrested in Old Mill DUII crash


A 20-year-old Bend man was taken to the hospital for treatment and later to jail Tuesday, arrested on DUII and assault charges after an early-morning crash in the Old Mill District that left his passenger critically injured.

Officers responded around 4:25 a.m. to the reported crash on SW Columbia Avenue, said Lt. Paul Kansky.

An investigation found that Lukas Anthony Lood was driving the car, with Marshall Rogers, also 20 and of Bend, as passenger, Kansky said.

Rogers was in critical condition later Tuesday at St. Charles Medical Center-Bend.

Lood was released from the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and later arrested as the investigation determined Lood was driving drunk, Kansky said.

Lood was taken to the Deschutes County Jail and lodged on charges of third-degree assault, DUII, reckless driving and reckless endangerment. Bail was set at $10,000.

The driver lost control going east on Columbia Street, approaching a bridge in the Old Mill District.

The car came to rest with its passenger side pinned against a concrete abutment at the west end of the bridge.

Portable lights were brought in, and after both patients were taken away, Columbia Street was shut down from Bond Street to Shevlin-Hixon Drive to allow accident reconstruction officers to start piecing together just what happened leading up to the crash.
