DEPOE BAY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a speeding SUV plunged off a cliff on the Oregon coast, landing on rocks 250 feet below. The female driver was ejected and found dead at the crash site.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says the Wednesday morning crash happened about three miles south of Depoe Bay. He says a witness traveling south on U.S. Highway 101 reported being passed by a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed that left the highway, traveled through a wide turnout and went over the cliff.

The driver was identified as 23-year-old Adriana Star Ruiz of Lincoln City.
