Woman from Spain killed in Highway 140 crash

A 26-year-old woman from Spain was killed and two people from Argentina were hospitalized Tuesday when the 2000 Ford Explorer in which they were riding collided with a motor home at the intersection of Highway 140 and Kershaw Road.

Cristina Hernandez Selles, from Spain, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a press release issued Wednesday by Oregon State Police.

Enrique Hames of Argentina, the driver of the Ford, failed to stop at the stop sign and flashing lights as he traveled northbound on Kershaw Road where it hits Highway 140.

The Ford drove into the path of an eastbound 2005 Fleetwood motor home driven by William Silva, 41, of Grants Pass. Silva was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

Hames, 25, sustained serious injuries and was transported to the hospital along with passenger Nicole Rossi, 24, also from Argentina.

Hernandez's family was notified of her death with help from the Spanish Consulate, police said.
