Stop the presses: Washington County DA may yet file charges against man who accidentally killed Kylie Hornych earlier this year.
Earlier this week the Washington County District Attorney announced that he was not charging David Herman, 60 of Hillsboro in connection with his car running over 11 year old Kylie Hornych (formerly of Waldport) outside her Aloha, OR home. The DA said Herman suffered a diabetic attack just before he lost control of his car. The DA said the incident was tragic, but that it may very well have been unavoidable.
But today, the Oreognian reports that Herman had a bad wreck in 2007 on which he blamed a diabetic attack. He made no mention of the accident to investigators which went then unreported to the DA. Today, the DA said he’s re-opening the case with an eye to possibly charging Herman with driving irresponsibly knowing he was a severe diabetic.
