State trooper injured, son killed in Oregon crash
State police say preliminary information shows Cayden Fitch, 18, of Lincoln City, was driving eastbound in a Ford Ranger pickup Friday night when he collided with an SUV after pulling into the westbound lane to pass a vehicle. Fitch died at the scene as did the SUV driver, Michael Moylett, 69, of Gresham.
The passengers in the two vehicles — Trooper Bryan Fitch and Moylett’s wife, Estella Moylett — were taken to Salem Hospital.
State police Lt. Gregg Hastings says Fitch works out of the Newport Area Command office and was off duty while traveling with his son.
