LINN COUNTY (KWWL) -

A traffic stop in Linn County led to the discovery of a crash early Friday morning.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office says a deputy pulled over a vehicle for speeding on Bertram Road at around 12:38 a.m. Friday.

When the deputy approached the vehicle, the people inside said they had just receive a call that their friend was involved in a crash and they were on the way to help.

When deputies arrived at the scene on Big Creek Road, about a half-mile south of Arrowhead Road, they found a pickup truck had crashed into a ditch.

One person inside, Zachary Ty Howell, had injuries to his face. A second person, who deputies believe may have been driving, had run from the scene.

The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending.
