PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Authorities on Tuesday identified the passenger killed in a gruesome crash near Clackamas as a 58-year-old man from Antioch, Calif.
Walter Cuenca and a 35-year-old Clackamas resident were traveling along SE Jennings near Jade Court around midnight Monday morning in a Maserati when the driver lost control of the sports car.
