Cry for help leads hitchhiker to Oregon crash

Posted: Updated:
 PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man trying to hitch a ride north of Cannon Beach, Oregon, found a fatal traffic crash instead.
    
Oregon State Police say the hitchhiker was walking along Highway 101 Sunday night when he heard a cry for help and saw the wrecked vehicle about 40 feet down an embankment.
    
Inside the vehicle were an injured driver and her deceased passenger.
    
Lt. Gregg Hastings says the vehicle appears to have crashed at least 12 hours before the hitchhiker arrived on the scene.
    
He identified the deceased passenger as 23-year-old Ruth Delgado of Los Angeles. The injured driver, 21-year-old Gabriela Rayon of Vancouver, Washington, was in fair condition Monday at a Portland hospital.
    
Hastings says the four-door Chevrolet was traveling southbound when it went off the road. The crash investigation remains active.
