Driver accused of killing soccer ball dribbler out of jail; he’s in hospice

SALEM, Ore. — The driver accused of fatally hitting a man attempting to walk from Seattle to Brazil in time for the 2014 World Cup was released from jail on Tuesday after telling the court he is in hospice.

Scott Hiatt of Neskowin was charged with criminally negligent homicide in the death of Richard Swanson, who was struck from behind by a pickup truck while walking along U.S. 101 near Lincoln City on May 14.

Lincoln County District Attorney Rob Bovett said Hiatt appeared in a video feed from jail, using an oxygen machine to breathe.

Bovett said a judge released Hiatt on the condition that he gives up his driver’s license and doesn’t drive.

His next scheduled court hearing is July 22.
