Five hurt in crash

SHERIDAN — Five local youth suffered injuries last Saturday morning in a single-vehicle crash north of Highway 18B at the intersection of Southwest Cherry Hill Road and Regia Drive.

The driver of the 2002 Lexus sport utility vehicle was identified by Yamhill County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Chris Ray as Bryce Aguayo-Strobi, 17, of Sheridan.

He was charged with one count each of fourth-degree assault, driving under the influence of intoxicants, reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person. He was ordered to appear in circuit court.

Other occupants of the vehicle were identified as Alycia Lefever, 19, of rural McMinnville; Nathan rentsch and Kevin Whisman, both 18 of McMinnville, and an unidentified 17-year-old female.

Their injuries ranged from minor to moderate, according to Sheridan Fire District spokesperson Wesley Rolfson.

When the first Sheridan Fire District crew arrived, two occupants were already out of the vehicle and two more were in the process of getting out. The fifth needed assistance, Rolfson said.

The five were transported by ambulance to the Willamette Valley Medical Center in McMinnville.

Aguayo allegedly lost control of the vehicle on a sharp curve. Alcohol and speed were factors, according to Ray.

The McMinnville Fire Department joined the Sheridan and West Valley fire districts in responding. The vehicle sustained heavy damage on the passenger side and roof.




I hope his license is revoked for 5 years,and who furnished the alcohol?Maybe a trip to the morgue is in order so these kids can see the results of what drinking and driving causes.
