1 killed, 1 hurt when truck goes off Ariz. cliff

TORTILLA FLAT - Authorities say one University of Oklahoma student from China is dead and another injured after a pickup truck went off a 200-foot cliff on an Arizona highway.

The state Department of Public Safety says the female driver was killed and that the male passenger had severe head injuries but was able to call for help early Wednesday morning.

The victims' identities were not released. The University of Oklahoma is on spring break.

DPS spokesman Bart Graves says it's not immediately known why the truck went off the cliff.

News video showed the truck at the bottom of a cliff. State Route 88 makes a sharp turn at the top of the cliff.

The highway is a twisting, scenic route in the Tonto National Forest east of the Phoenix area.
