DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. -- A Myrtle Creek man has been arrested following a two-vehicle crash Jan. 30 that sent one person to the hospital.

A report shows officers responded to a collision in the 600 block of NE Jackson Street in Roseburg at about 6:06 p.m. Tristin Fischer, 24, allegedly failed to obey a stop sign and hit the side of a red 1999 Ford F-250 with his silver 2004 Ford Focus.

Officers said Fisher showed signs of impairment at the scene. Court documents reveal he reportedly had a blood alcohol level of .15 or more.

The driver of the truck, James Watkins-Todt, 53, of Roseburg, was transported to a hospital with neck and back pain.

Fisher faces multiple charges, including driving under the influence of intoxicants, third-degree assault and recklessly endangering another person. His bond is set at $10,000, and he is scheduled to appear back in court on Feb. 8.
