Hubbard man arrested after crash kills 6-year-old
A Hubbard man has been arrested on DUI and manslaughter charges after the vehicle he was operating crashed, resulting in multiple injuries and the death of a 6-year-old.
On Friday afternoon, Shane Richard Bremer, 34, of Hubbard, was reportedly driving a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe carrying one other adult and three children in rural Clackamas County when it crashed. Due to lack of cell service, the party made its way to a residence by flagging down another motorist. They reportedly were able to contact emergency personnel at 5:21 p.m. from a residence in the 34000 block of South Dickey Prairie Road in Molalla, about 15 miles from the crash site.
Emergency personnel reported that one of the children, Derick Bedwell, 6, died of injuries. The other two children, Dylan Bedwell, 6, and Rebecca Sanders, 10, were injured and taken to a local hospital, along with Bremer, who sustained minor injuries. Another passenger, Jennifer Sanders, 29, of Canby, was transported to a local hospital via Life Flight.
Following the investigation, Bremer, who is not the father of any of the three children, was arrested Saturday and lodged at Clackamas County Jail on charges of one count of reckless driving, four counts of reckless endangering, three counts of fourth-degree assault, one count of third-degree assault, one count of DUII and one count of first-degree manslaughter. His bail is set at $282,500.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office was assisted by the Medical Examiners officer, American Medical Response, Life Flight Network, Molalla Police Department, Molalla Fire department and the Clackamas County Crash Reconstruction and Forensic Team.
