Thompson Receives 6-Years for Road Rage Death

A North Bend man has been convicted of killing another man in a road rage incident that took place in December 2020.  41-year-old Joshua James Thompson was sentenced to six years and three months with the Oregon Department of Corrections after pleading guilty to one count of second-degree manslaughter. 28-year-old Michael David Moore died from crush-type injuries after he was intentionally struck by a vehicle in a North Bend residential area. Authorities say the road rage incident involved three vehicles and started off Highway 101. It ended when the SUV struck Moore and ran into a residence on Union Avenue. A manhunt for Thompson ended more than a month later when he was arrested at a Coos Bay motel and charged with second-degree murder. With the plea, a second count of Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver to Injured Persons was dropped. After serving his sentence, Thompson will have three years of post-prison supervision and will also have to pay more than $11-thousand dollars in restitution.
