HARRISBURG, Ore. (AP) - The driver of a minivan that crashed into another vehicle and killed a man near Harrisburg is suspected of driving under the influence.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1DbOqTS ) 20-year-old Nicholas Norman of Harrisburg is facing charges of second-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence of intoxicants. Deputies say evidence suggests that Norman had a blood-alcohol level twice over the legal limit and had used cocaine and marijuana.

According to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, four people were in a 1993 Toyota Previa early Sunday morning about three miles north of Harrisburg when Norman failed to negotiate a left-hand curve and slammed into them.

Deputies say 19-year-old Zachary Triplett was the only occupant not wearing a seat belt. He was thrown 50 feet from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
