One person died early Wednesday morning in a single vehicle crash along Highway 34 about fifteen miles east of Highway 101.
According to Oregon State Police (OSP) Lieutenant Kelly Collins, on May 7, 2008 at approximately 3:46 a.m. a report was received through Lincoln County Communications Center of a vehicle off Highway 34 near milepost 15. Central Coast Fire & Rescue responded and discovered a 2006 Nissan pickup on its top about 30 feet off the highway with a deceased lone male identified as DAVID A. KUYKENDOLL, age 39, from Benicia, California.
Preliminary investigation by OSP indicates the pickup was eastbound when it left the south side of the highway, traveled over the top of a guardrail and struck several trees. The pickup came to rest on its top about 30 feet down the embankment.
