Local news in brief

Sisters driver cited in crash

A Sisters man was cited on suspicion of careless driving following a two-vehicle crash Wednesday on U.S. Highway 97 about 10 miles north of Klamath Falls.

According to the Oregon State Police, Howard Kingman, 70, of Sisters, was driving north shortly after 1 p.m. when he attempted to pass a vehicle driven by Robert Burton, 56, of Chelan, Wash. Kingman reportedly lost control on the icy road and struck Burton’s vehicle. Both vehicles slid off the road and into an irrigation canal, coming to rest with Burton’s vehicle largely submerged and underneath Kingman’s vehicle, according to an OSP news release.

Burton and passengers Bree Burton, 20, and Bree Burton’s 2-month-old son were taken to Sky Lakes Medical Center in Klamath Falls with minor injuries.

Madras High coach back in jail

Michael Osborne, the Madras High School coach charged with sexually abusing one of his players, is back in jail after being arrested again.

Osborne, 44, was reportedly arrested Friday morning on suspicion of tampering with a witness and violating his release agreement. He was being held Thursday at the Jefferson County Jail on $350,000 bail.

Madras Police initially arrested Osborne on Nov. 20 after a high school student reportedly told investigators they had been in a sexual relationship since April. Osborne faces 15 counts of second-degree sexual abuse and has been placed on paid leave by the Jefferson County School District.
