PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The 18-year-old son of ex-Oregon governor John Kitzhaber has been booked on a warrant related to a July crash near the Oregon coast.

Jail records show Logan Kitzhaber was booked into the Multnomah County Jail Wednesday afternoon and released hours later.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://goo.gl/PqDfhe ) the Lincoln County warrant was for assault, DUI, reckless driving, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

State Police say Kitzhaber of Portland was driving a Toyota Prius on U.S. Highway 101 north of Lincoln City when it sideswiped a motor home after crossing the centerline, causing it to roll onto its side.

The motorhome occupants- Stanley and Martha Lyckman of Port Angeles, Washington - were treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening. Kitzhaber suffered serious injuries.

Court records show Kitzhaber said he drank a beer before driving that day. A trooper has said he believes Kitzhaber was under the influence of intoxicants at the time.
