BEND, OR -- A Sherwood, Oregon man is accused of Manslaughter, following a deadly crash west of Tumalo, Sunday morning. Investigators say 45-year-old David Fincher lost control of his pickup on a corner and collided with two separate vehicles in the oncoming lane. 


The crash occurred on Highway 20, near milepost 12, at about 9:30 Sunday morning. Oregon State Police say a Bend woman driving a Volkswagen Jetta and a seven-year-old boy were taken to the hospital; a two-year-old girl was killed. Two adults in the second vehicle were also treated for their injuries. 


OSP believes a bicyclist was nearly struck by Fincher just before the crash. Anyone with information on the identity of that bicyclist, or who has any other information relating to the incident, is asked to call Senior Trooper Jason Hanson at 541-388-6213. 


Fincher was arrested for Manslaughter in the second degree, he's scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon.
