Clackamas Co. Sheriff's Office - 06/18/18 7:12 AM

On Friday June 15, 2018 at approximately 5:21 p.m. Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported injury traffic crash where the involved were currently at a residence in the 34000 block of S. Dickey Prairie Rd., Molalla Oregon.  It was reported to our office that the crash scene, involving a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe, was approximately 15 miles from the residence but due to a lack of cell service, all the involved made their way to a residence by flagging another motorist over.

It was reported that the crash was a single vehicle crash with multiple injuries.  Once deputies and medical personnel from Molalla Fire arrived, it was determined that 1 child, Derick Bedwell age 6, sustained fatal injuries, 2 other children, Dylan Bedwell age 6 and Rebecca Sanders age 10, sustained injuries and were transported to a local hospital via AMR. A fourth passenger, Jennifer Sanders, 29 years old from Canby, sustained injuries and was transported to a local hospital via Life Flight. 

The operator of the vehicle, Shane Richard Bremer (booking photo attached), 34 years old from Hubbard, accompanied two of the children to the hospital via AMR.  Mr. Bremer, who is not the father of any of the three children, sustained minor injuries and was treated at the hospital. Following investigation, Mr. Bremer was arrested and lodged at the Clackamas County Jail on the following charges:
Reckless Driving X1
Reckless Endangering X4
Assault IV X3
Assault III X1
DUII – Alcohol X1
Manslaughter I X1

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Medical Examiners officer, American Medical Response, Life Flight Network, Molalla Police department, Molalla Fire department, and the Clackamas County Crash Reconstruction and Forensic Team.
