SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 19-year-old woman sought by police was struck and killed when she tried to cross Interstate 5 in Salem.


Oregon State Police Lt. Mark Duncan says Salem officers were dispatched to a restaurant Sunday on a report that the woman, Sofia Diaz-Piceno, was causing a disturbance.

When officers arrived, they could not find her. Soon, they were told that someone had been struck on nearby I-5. Duncan says the woman was hit by at least two vehicles in the northbound lanes. She died at the scene.

The investigation remains active.
