A Wasco County Grand Jury indicted Nathan James Verhaeghe, 31, on Feb. 17 of three second-degree manslaughter charges and a charge of second-degree assault, which are felonies. The grand jury also indicted Verhaeghe on two counts of recklessly endangering another person and reckless driving, which are misdemeanors.
Verhaeghe appeared Feb. 21 before Wasco County Circuit Court Judge John Olson for arraignment and is scheduled to enter a plea March 14. He is being held on $860,000 bail in the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility in The Dalles.From left: Adam Clausen, Felix Clausen and Shannon O'Leary. (family photo)
At about 4 p.m. Dec. 26 on U.S. 26 in the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, authorities contend Verhaeghe's 2007 Chevrolet Malibu hit the rear of a 2006 Toyota Matrix, pushing the Matrix into the eastbound lane where it collided with a 2013 Chrysler van.
The Matrix driver, Adam Clausen, 37, and a passenger, his wife, Shannon O'Leary, 39, both of Portland, were killed. Their 4-year-old son, also in the vehicle, was injured.
The Chrysler van driver, Robert Burke, 34, of Reno, Nevada, was killed. Two passengers -- Rachel Burke, 29, also of Reno, and their 22-month-old son -- were injured.
Verhaeghe also was injured.
"Speed and other contributing factors are being investigated as causes of the crash," a state police news release said at the time.
O'Leary was an assistant professor of physics at Lewis & Clark; Clausen was a technology consultant at Kolisch Hartwell, a law firm specializing in intellectual property.
