E. Oregon police chase kidnap suspect; crash kills 2

One may have been abducted woman

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A woman who may have been kidnapped died Monday when the pickup she was in collided with another vehicle during a police chase in Eastern Oregon.

Oregon State Police Capt. Bill Fugate says Ontario police responded around 6:45 a.m. to a kidnapping in progress at a convenience store. Just as officers arrived, the suspect fled in a Dodge pickup with a woman who was reportedly being held against her will.

Officers pursued the pickup onto Highway 201, where the southbound Dodge crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a Ford.

The woman in the Dodge died at the scene, as did the driver of the Ford.

Fugate said the suspect driving the Dodge suffered serious injuries, as did a passenger in the Ford.

More details were not immediately available. The investigation remains active.
