Police: Ore. Hit-And-Run Victims Were Fighting In Road

CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. (AP) — State police say two men killed in a hit-and-run in Southern Oregon were fighting in the road when they were struck by a pickup truck.

Authorities identified the victims Wednesday as 21-year-old Jarred Quinn Houston and 41-year-old Robert Calvin, both of Cave Junction.

Troopers say Calvin was walking with a woman along U.S. Highway 199 south of Cave Junction in the dark at around midnight Tuesday, when Houston pulled over, possibly due to a mechanical problem. The two men started arguing and were fighting in the southbound lane when they were hit by a compact pickup truck that never stopped.

The vehicle was described as a light-colored — possibly beige or tan — 1980s Toyota pickup with a matching canopy and damage to the front end.
