      1 Killed, 1 Hurt When Car Goes Off Ariz. Cliff

      TORTILLA FLAT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a University of Oklahoma student from China is dead and another was injured when a car went off an Arizona highway and over a 200-foot cliff early Wednesday morning.

      The state Department of Public Safety says the man driving the car was killed and a male passenger survived the plunge but was injured.

      Identities were not released.

      DPS spokesman Bart Graves says two other Chinese students also from the university were in another vehicle. They called 911 when one saw the car go off the cliff.

      Graves says the car may have been going too fast to make a curve on State Route 88.

      Graves says the accident occurred on a drive to gaze at stars and that the students were visiting a friend at Arizona State University.
