BEND, Ore. (AP) - The Deschutes County Sheriff’s office says a 19-year-old Bend man was jailed on DUI, assault and other charges after a crash on a Forest Service road near Tumalo Falls.

KTVZ-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2736D78 ) that the crash early Saturday sent four passengers to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Lt. Tim Leak says Jordan Jeffrey Neelon was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee down the road from the Tumalo Falls area toward Bend “at a high rate of speed” when he lost control on the gravel road and struck a tree near the roadway.

Four passengers were taken to St. Charles Bend. Leak says alcohol and speed were contributing factors in the crash.

Neelon was arrested on charges of DUI and four counts each of reckless endangering and third-degree assault.
