Hunters drive off Lewis County cliff, woman dies

DOTY, Lewis County (AP) — The Pacific County sheriff’s office says a couple who were hunting drove their truck off a logging road and it fell about 2,000 feet down a cliff into a ravine.

Deputy Pat Matlock says the woman driving died at the scene Tuesday and a man in the passenger’s seat suffered critical injuries and was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The Chronicle reports another couple hunting with the pair had to drive to a location with cell phone reception to call for help.

The accident occurred on Weyerhaeuser land near the western edge of Lewis County, so Pacific deputies responded along with the Washington State Patrol and Raymond Fire Department.
