A Eugene man has been charged with second-degree assault for driving a vehicle earlier this month while intoxicated and resulting in the injury of a passenger.

Court documents show Beck struck a road sign and caused serious physical injury to a passenger, identified by the patrol as Austin Bashore, 17, Eugene, who was not wearing a seat belt.
Beck was not injured and was wearing a seat belt.
