Increased charges in Oregon hit-and-run

The Associated Press

EUGENE, Ore. — Additional charges of manslaughter and intoxicated driving have been filed against the driver accused of hitting a man in Springfield and carrying him on top of her car for 11 blocks.

Prosecutors had charged 30-year-old Isabel Gloria McDaniel of Veneta with criminally negligent homicide.

The Register-Guard reports a Lane County grand jury expanded the charges.

McDaniel pleaded not guilty Wednesday to the charges, including an eight-count indictment. Her lawyer, Laura Fine Moro of Eugene, declined comment after the court appearance.

McDaniel was arrested Saturday in the Dec. 11 death of Daniel Ortiz-Reynaga.

Police believe he was flipped onto the luggage rack by the impact and carried 11 blocks until the car stopped and he was removed.
