KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities charged a Klamath Falls woman with manslaughter after a fiery crash that killed one motorcyclist and injured three others.
Klamath Falls police say 46-year-old Brenda Tobin was driving a pickup late Thursday when she turned directly into the path of two motorcycles.
One of the motorcycles collided with the pickup and caught fire, killing 37-year-old Terry Maxwell of Bonanza. A passenger on Maxwell's motorcycle suffered major injuries.
The second motorcycle struck the back of Maxwell's motorcycle, sending another two riders to the hospital.
The police department says officers developed probable cause to believe Tobin was driving under the influence of intoxicants. In addition to manslaughter, she was booked into jail on charges of assault, DUI and reckless endangerment.
