TROUTDALE, Ore --Two 19 year olds slammed into a rock wall along a riverside stretch of Southeast Stark Street late Wednesday night in a motorcycle accident that left one young woman dead and sent a young man to the hospital.

Troutdale residents Tatiana Ofa and Kaleb Jarvis were driving on a winding portion of Southeast Stark Street when their 2007 Kawasaki Ninja failed to make a turn.

The two smashed into a rock wall at the intersection of Southeast Stark Street and Kerlake Road. Multnomah County Sheriff's deputies arrived shortly after 11 p.m. and pronounced Ofa dead on the scene. Jarvis was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The roadway was closed for four hours for an investigation.
