Ex-Gov. Kitzhaber’s son sentenced to week in Hwy. 101 crash


LINCOLN CITY, Ore. (AP) – The teenage son of former Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber has been sentenced to a week in jail after pleading guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants during a crash last Fourth of July.

Logan Kitzhaber, 19, also pleaded guilty to assault Monday in Lincoln County.

Oregon State Police said Kitzhaber was driving a Toyota Prius on U.S. Highway 101 that sideswiped a motor home after crossing the centerline, causing it to roll onto its side.

Kitzhaber was hospitalized along with the motor home occupants, Stanley and Martha Lyckman of Port Angeles, Washington.

Court records show Kitzhaber admitted drinking a beer before the drive. He also told police he had smoked marijuana the night before.

Besides jail time, the 19-year-old was sentenced to five years on probation.
