Police seek information on hit and run

White truck involved in Sandy hit and run later found to be stolen from Idaho


The Sandy Police Department is seeking information about a hit and run that occurred last November.

Around 1:15 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 7, a Sandy man was crossing Pioneer Boulevard at Meinig Avenue when he was struck by what police are calling a white “box van style” truck. The truck did not slow down or stop, leaving the man lying in the street in serious condition.

After reviewing video captured from various sources that night, detectives saw a vehicle matching that description.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office recovered a truck that matched the description of the truck given to officers on Nov. 7. The vehicle had license plates registered to a business in Salem, but the business reported no missing vehicles.

Recently, the Sandy Police Department discovered that the truck had been stolen from Bonner County Idaho on Wednesday, Nov. 6.

Investigators continue to analyze evidence in hopes that they can learn the identity of those involved.

The Sandy victim has since been released from the hospital.

Police are asking for information relating to the hit and run, the theft of the truck and the theft of the license plate found on the truck.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Sandy Police Department.

The crime tip line is available electronically on the department’s website or at 503-489-2195.
