State Police say Kitzhaber of Portland was driving a Toyota Prius on U.S. Highway 101 north of Lincoln City when it sideswiped a motor home after crossing the centerline, causing it to roll onto its side.

The motor home occupants– Stanley and Martha Lyckman of Port Angeles, Washington — were treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening. Kitzhaber suffered serious injuries.

Court records show Kitzhaber said he drank a beer before driving that day. A trooper has said he believes Kitzhaber was under the influence of intoxicants at the time.
