Man pleads not guilty after child hit, killed in crosswalk

GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) — A 26-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to several charges after an 11-year-old was hit and killed in a crosswalk near his school Monday in the Portland suburb of Gresham. Garret Bergquist pleaded not guilty Tuesday to two counts of manslaughter, once count of driving under the influence of intoxicants and one count of reckless driving. Police say Bergquist ran a red light and hit Luis Medina in a marked crosswalk. Medina died at the scene. Authorities say a drug recognition evaluator who responded determined Bergquist was impaired by depressants and narcotic pain relievers and could not safely operate a motor vehicle.
