Criminally Neglitent Homicide

A Neskowin man has been indicted for the May 14th death of a Seattle man, who was walking along Highway 101 to a World Cup soccer match in Brazil. Richard Swanson, 42, was hit and killed near Pro Build in South Lincoln City by a pickup driven by Scott Hiatt, 52, of Neskown.

After the accident, Hiatt remained on scene and was characterized as being fully cooperative with police.

After a grand jury investigation into what happened, the jury handed down an indictment against Hiatt for criminally negligent homicide. Hiatt is scheduled to appear tomorrow afternoon in Lincoln County Circuit Court for arraignment of the charges. Details of the case are expected to unfold as the judicial process moves forward.

If convicted of negligent homicide, under Oregon State Statutes, he faces up to ten years in prison.

Swanson was doing a charity walk from Seattle to Sao Paulo Brazil for a group called Team Richard. Swanson was expected to end his walking trek to Sao Paulo for the beginning of the World match by June 12th.
