Driver of motorhome charged in fatal crash

The Register-Guard - Eugene,OR,USA
Five days after a crash on Interstate 5 near Creswell that killed a 5-year-old girl and another person, a Cottage Grove man was charged Monday with manslaughter and drunken driving in connection with the wreck.

Oregon State Police troopers arrested Stephen Whitaker, 41, on Sunday, upon his release from a Springfield hospital where he received treatment for injuries sustained in Wednesday’s crash.

Whitaker was driving north on the freeway about 9 p.m. when he lost control of his motor home.

Police said the vehicle crossed the center median and veered into the southbound lanes, where it collided with an oncoming Oldsmobile Alero driven by 35-year-old Springfield resident Cathleen Coontz.

Coontz and her husband, Brian, 35, were hospitalized briefly with minor injuries.

Their daughter, Kailee, died in the crash.
