BEND, OR -- A 25-year old California man is accused of driving under the influence, following an early morning crash near the Bend Police Department.  His passenger, 21-year old Kellie Driscoll of Bend, called 911 just after 2:30 this morning, saying her vehicle was in the bushes and she didn't know where she was. Bend Police found the car down an embankment off Highway 20 and 15th, near the Bend Public Works and Police Department buildings.

 
Investigators say Keith Gilchrist, Jr was driving westbound when he crossed into oncoming traffic, struck a curb, and drove down the dirt embankment, finally stopping in a grove of trees.  There were no injuries. Gilchrist was arrested on several charges, including DUII and reckless endangerment.
