CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — One year later, the search for the suspect and vehicle involved in a fatal hit and run continues. Oregon State Police is asking for the public’s help to solve the incident that killed two men on October 30th, 2013, near Cave Junction.
Police received the report about fifteen minutes after midnight last year that two people were struck by a vehicle in the 27000 block of Highway 199, South of Cave Junction.
When emergency personnel arrived, they confirmed 21-year old Jarred Houston and 41-year old Robert Calvin – both from Cave Junction – were dead. The involved vehicle and driver had already fled the scene of the crime.
Houston and Calvin were reportedly in a dispute that turned physical and spread out into the middle of the road where they were hit by the suspect vehicle. The vehicle in question was described by Police as light colored, possibly tan, 1980s style single cab Toyota pickup, with a matching color canopy and some front end damage.
Police have invested hundreds of hours into the investigation, but to no avail. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest in the unsolved case.
Anyone with information is asked to call OSP Southern Command Center dispatch at 541-776-6111,
