    Driver accidentally shot by passenger in car

    Source: http://www.newsregister.com/article/...riving+vehicle
    BELLEVUE — A Willamina man was shot in the back Saturday afternoon while he was driving a vehicle in the rural Sheridan area and two rear seat passengers were examining a .22-caliber derringer. The male victim did not suffer life-threatening injuries. The passengers were arrested by McMinnville police on drug charges.

    Yamhill County Sheriff's Capt. Ken Summers identified the victim as Christopher Daniel Anderson, 22, of 320 N.E. First St., No. 306. Summers gave this account of the incident:

    Anderson was at the wheel of a 2001 Dodge Durango pickup. Sarah Ellen Davidson, 24, of 730 S.W. Brockwood Ave., No. 1, McMinnville, and Brenton Thomas Story, 23, who lives on Peavine Ridge Road, McMinnville, were in the backseat. They were handling the gun when it discharged and one round struck Anderson. He drove to the intersection of Highway 18 and Bellevue Highway, northeast of Sheridan, and called 911. A Sheridan Fire District ambulance transported him to the Willamette Valley Medical Center where he was treated in the emergency room and released.

    McMinnville police, who also responded to the shooting call, took Davidson and Story into custody. They each were charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance/methamphetamine. They were booked into the county jail on $5,000 bail.

    "Always treat your firearms as if they are loaded to prevent accidents like this from occurring" said Sheriff Jack Crabtree. "We are all relieved that Mr. Anderson is expected to make a full recovery, but this incident would never have occurred if this most basic of firearms safety rules had been followed."

    Summers said reports of the incident will be forwarded to District Attorney Brad Berry's office.
    I like how the story isn't slanted to suggest that guns are bad, but rather that bad things will happen when you act like an idiot.

    Sounds like they missed the "this is your brain, this is your brain on meth" message.

    Treat like it's loaded, point at what you're willing to destroy, keep finger off the trigger.

    This was not an "accident"...It was negligence.

    He got shot in the back by one of his drug-dealing pals that he was taxiing around. I'm not all that "relieved" by his full recovery.

    I don't believe it was negligence, I think it's another case of a Moron discharge.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)

    Sheriff Crabtree sounds like a smart man.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
