EPD Charges Man in Fatal Crash

EUGENE, Ore. — Eugene Police has charged Dallin Jeffrey Stewart, 19, of Vernal, Utah, with DUII following the investigation into a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash on July 24.

Just after 10 p.m., police got a call of someone who had been hit a truck traveling northbound on the Ferry Street Bridge.

“When the impact happened, there were some trauma surgeons that just happened to be nearby, heard the crash and came very quickly on the scene to render first aid immediately, and then they were able to get him transported to the hospital,” said Melinda McLaughlin, Eugene Police spokeswoman.

Nicholas Tendick, 32, died from the injuries he sustained after being hit by the truck, driven by Stewart.
