HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) – A Tigard man was arrested yesterday following a deadly hit-and-run crash south of Hillsboro. Washington County deputies say Bryan Onderdonk was arrested several hours after Onderdonk collided with another vehicle on Oregon 219 and fled. The driver of the second vehicle, 50-year-old Marcos Castillo of Vancouver, Wash., was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities brought Onderdonk into custody after he allegedly broke into a house.
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – A local couple and their landlord are being sued for $500,000 for an alleged 2011 attack by the couple’s old dog on a passing pedestrian. But one of the dog’s owners says it never attacked the woman, claiming she lost her footing when the friendly, then-19-year-old dog approached her. Harley the dog is now 21, blind and deaf. The Eugene Register-Guard reports the matter will be decided in Lane County Circuit Court, where the lawsuit was filed last week by an attorney for Holly Higgins.
CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) – A 66-year-old retired Corvallis High School music teacher has been stripped of his teaching license. State education officials have permanently revoked the teaching license of Marshall H. Price because of inappropriate conduct involving students. The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports Price between 2007 and 2009 made inappropriate comments to a female student. He allegedly made a similar comment to her in 2010 after she graduated.
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) – Pac-12 tournament champions. No. 12 seed. Underdogs. Oregon is happy to carry any label it’s given in the NCAA tournament – all the way into the round of 16 — after defeating fourth-seeded Saint Louis 74-57 on Saturday night. After the NCAA selection committee turned some heads for seeding Oregon so low, the Ducks dismissed two favorites by a combined 30 points in San Jose. Oregon will play No. 1 overall seed Louisville in the Midwest Regional in Indianapolis next.
