Man charged with manslaughter in wrong way I-5 fatal crash

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- The man that authorities say drove the wrong way on the freeway and hit another car, killing an Oakland man heading to work, has been charged with manslaughter and DUII.

Oregon State Police arrested Joshua Davis, 26, of Eugene after his release from Mercy Medical Center.

The charges stem from a Sunday morning crash on Interstate 5 north of Canyonville, that took the life of Victor Anderson, 44, of Oakland.

Authorities say Davis was heading north in the southbound lanes when he struck Anderson's car, killing him.

Officials have charged Davis with first degree manslaughter, DUII and recklessly endangering another person.

He is being held in the Douglas County Jail.
