Charges in death of pedestrian hit, carried on car

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Prosecutors have filed a charge of criminally negligent homicide against a woman in the death of a man who was hit by a station wagon, flipped on top of the vehicle and carried 11 blocks.

Sixty-seven-year-old Daniel Ortiz-Reynaga, a resident of Mexico, had been crossing a street with his son.

On Saturday, police arrested 30-year-old Isabel Gloria McDaniel of Veneta on charges of failing to perform the duties of a driver and evidence tampering. On Monday, prosecutors added the homicide charge.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1wFZvLr ) that McDaniel appeared in court Monday and is to return Jan. 20. Her public defender did not immediately return a call.
