ONTARIO, Ore. --- A Colorado man charged in what Oregon prosecutor say was a hate crime stabbing has been found unfit for trial and will be sent to the Oregon State Hospital before his case can move forward.

Officials said 26-year-old Nolan Strauss was ordered to the hospital for treatment on Wednesday.

The truck driver from Colorado Springs was charged with attempted murder after police said he attacked and stabbed a black man in a truck stop restaurant with no provocation.

Strauss has not yet entered a plea, and was unable to be reached for comment.
