Driver with DUII history arraigned in second fatal DUII crash | #College. | #Students

A man convicted of killing his brother in a drunk driving crash six years ago was arraigned Monday on manslaughter and driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) charges after allegedly crashing into a house and killing a former Chemeketa Community College instructor.

Keizer police said Andrew Robert Modine’s blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit when he crashed into a power pole before barreling into the bedroom of the home, killing Moira Hughes, 67, and leaving a second resident paralyzed from the waist down.

Modine, 41, of Keizer, is being held at Marion County jail without bail. 

Modine has a criminal history involving DUII in Oregon. Most recently, he was on supervised probation after being convicted of hit-and-run and DUII charges after killing his younger brother while driving drunk in 2016, court records show. A criminally negligent homicide charge was dropped at the time as part of a plea deal.
