Arrest in ATV hit-and-run that killed Washington man

WINCHESTER BAY, Ore. (AP) -- Oregon officials say they've made an arrest in an all-terrain vehicle crash that killed a Washington state man.

The Register-Guard reports that two ATVs crashed on the dunes in Winchester Bay late Friday night. The driver of one of the ATVs, 30-year-old Benjamin Wohl, of Poulsbo, Washington, was killed; his passenger, Breauna Ellison, of Clackamas, Oregon, was seriously hurt.

Deputies say there were three people on the ATV that struck them, two males and a female. According to investigators, they briefly stopped after the accident, then drove off away before leaving on foot.

Sheriff's Captain Dwes Hutson confirmed Tuesday that one person had been arrested. Walker Thomas Kellogg, 25, of Winchester, was arrested Monday night and lodged in the Douglas County Jail on charges that include second-degree manslaughter and failure to perform the duties of a driver to injured persons in a hit-and-run.

Danielle Elizabeth Gockel-Figge, 24, was a passenger on the ATV that struck Wohl and Ellison's ATV. She was cited for hindering prosecution.
