MEDFORD - A man who drove over a fellow partygoer sleeping on a Southern Oregon road has made a plea bargain that will send him to jail for 30 days.

Aaron Hasko, 22, of Klamath Falls, was at a party with about a dozen people at a campsite at Whiskey Lake east of Medford that ran into the early hours of June 16, investigators said. He left the party but hit a power pole, and he decided to drive back, they said. Meanwhile, officers said, James Severe, 25, of Butte Falls left the party and fell asleep on Butte Falls-Fish Lake Road.

Hasko drove over him and continued driving to the campsite, investigators said. Severe died on the way to the hospital in Medford.
