A 47-year-old Bend woman was killed Friday afternoon when a man driving a pickup erratically on Highway 97 swerved into her lane and hit her car head on just north of La Pine, according to Oregon State Police.

Killed at the scene was Kay Adell Strait, the sole occupant of a 1997 Mazda....

News/Obit* 23 December 2008  The following is an abstract of an article about deadley drivers, in particular a David Black who was a very serious offfender. Other drivers involved in fatal accidents were compared to Black. The following describes the accident that took the life of Kay Adel Strait:

On Jan. 12, 2001, 45-year-old Jerry Anderson suffered a seizure while driving on U.S. Highway 97. His pickup crossed the center line just north of La Pine, hitting a car driven by Bend resident Kay Strait. Strait died at the scene.

Anderson had a history of seizures. He sought medical advice following an episode in 1999, and the doctor urged him not to drive. Anderson later admitted that he avoided treatment in order to keep his license, which he would have lost had his seizures continued. He also admitted that his seizures had been occurring more frequently prior to the accident.

Deschutes County District Attorney Mike Dugan argued in a letter to his lawyer that Anderson “was aware of and consciously disregarded a substantial and unjustifiable risk. His disregard was the direct cause of the death of Kay Strait.”
Anderson was indicted on numerous counts, the most serious being second-degree manslaughter, a Measure 11 crime. He pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide and was given six months in jail.
