Hit and run driver sought
The public is being asked to help identify the driver involved in a hit and run accident in east Multnomah County late Saturday.
The name of the victim, an adult female, was not immediately released. She was transferred to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses say the vehicle that hit her was a dark, possibly black colored pickup truck believed to be a 2000 or later Chevrolet HD2500 with a silver tool box in the bed. The truck was towing either a Wells Cargo or First Interstate trailer, white in color with an access door on the right side. The passenger side mirror is believed to have been damaged during the incident.
According to the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, at 10:45 p.m. on June 7, deputies responded to the report of a pedestrian struck on Southeast Foster Road west of 172nd Avenue. Initial reports indicate the vehicle involved in the crash fled the scene prior to police arriving in the area. The vehicle was last seen heading eastbound on Foster.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office tip line at (503) 261-2847.
