Former Oregon LB Fotu Leiato dies in auto accident

Eugene police say a body was found in heavy brush hours after a rollover crash in which the suspected drunken driver said he was not carrying any passengers. Eugene police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin late Friday night identified the victim as Leiato, who she said was a passenger in the vehicle. Investigating officers believe that the 22-year-old driver, identified by police as Pedro Chavarin Jr., lied to them early Friday morning after he crashed a auto and said he had no passengers. The man told officers he had been driving alone. Police responded to the crash around 2:30 a.m., Leiato's body was found around 7 a.m. after a woman saw a hand sticking out of the brush, according to police. Investigators determined Leiato had been a passenger in the vehicle. The driver, who was identified as Pedro Chavarin Jr., was transported to a local hospital and then cited for DUI. Leiato played in 21 games during his three years with the Ducks, recording 37 total tackles and breaking up two passes. He had three sacks in the spring game and was expected to contend for a starting outside linebacker job this coming season.
