ASTORIA, Ore. - An Oregon man who was arrested after a boat crash has died, putting an end to the criminal case.

75-year-old Marlin Larsen died two months ago at a Roseburg hospital. His obituary was published Feb. 22.

He had been charged with fourth-degree assault after last summer's crash during the Buoy 10 fishing season.

Authorities say he had been piloting a fishing boat that rammed another vessel on the Columbia River. The three people aboard the other boat jumped into the river just before impact.

In addition to assault, Larsen was charged with recklessly endangering another person and reckless operation of a boat.

The passengers filed civil suits, at least one of which has been transferred to a representative of Larsen's estate.

Larsen owned the Harborview Resort in Hammond and also had property in Roseburg.
