Man jumps from moving SUV to his death

‘Police say a Milton-Freewater man died after jumping from a vehicle driven by his wife while their two young children were in the back seat.

It happened when the couple was northbound on Oregon 11 Friday night, and the SUV was doing 40 to 50 miles per hour.

Police say alcohol was a contributing factor but gave no other explanation.

Raydel Gutierrez was 24. He was a passenger in the SUV driven by his 24-year old wife, whose name was not released.

Lieutenant Greg Sherman says the couple’s two children, ages 4 and 7, were in the rear seat.

Sherman says Gutierrez intentionally jumped out of the passenger side and landed on the highway.’
