MILTON-FREEWATER, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon state troopers are continuing to investigate a single-car crash that killed a Walla Walla, WA, man near Milton-Freewater early this morning.

It happened on Highway 11 at about 6:50 a.m. OSP says a Ford pickup driven by Enrique Gonzales was headed South near milepost 34 when it lost control on the icy roadway. The pickup spun around, crossed the highway and went airborne after hitting a curb. It landed on its passenger side before crashing into a concrete wall.

Gonzales was pronounced dead at the scene. Investigators say speed and icy road conditions contributed to the crash.
