7:45pm Car has careened off Siletz Highway at Hudson Loop. It’s down a 200 embankment. County rope rescue team is being called to the scene for rescuing whoever is in the car.
8:03pm No one in the car, per fire-rescue on scene. Black Saturn. Oregon plates.
8:10pm Fire-rescue on scene says there are no signs that the car was occupied before it went over the side.
9:30pm Law enforcement sounds like they’re leaning toward declaring it a stolen car, joy ridden and then drove it off the embankment with no one in it. The car was registered to a local address. Was seen last down on the Bayfront in Newport with a parking ticket on it.
