PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – Officers responded to a fatal single-car crash around 6 a.m. Sunday in the 5700 block of Gaffin Road in Salem. 

The driver has been identified as 23-year-old Salomon Leyva-Ramirez, who was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Salem police said it appears Leyva-Ramirez was driving eastbound on Gaffin Road and “could not negotiate a slight bend in that portion of the road,” which led the car off the road—crashing into a tree.

An investigation is underway by the Salem Police Traffic Team.
