Oregon State Police seek blond driving red SUV who was on her cell phone at time of Oregon City crash

Oregon State Police are looking for a woman driving a red SUV who was involved in a hit-and-run crash with two other vehicles Feb. 1 after she drove the wrong way on Highway 213 in Oregon City.

SUBMITTED PHOTO - An 18-year-old woman from Beavercreek driving a Ford Escape survived without injuries, but the vehicle was totaled by a Feb. 1 hit-and-run driver. The hit-and-run suspect was identified as a blond woman who was on her cell phone at the time of the crash.

According to an OSP report, the suspect at around 7:35 p.m. drove south in the northbound lanes of Highway 213 near the Home Depot between Redland Road and Washington Street. A 26-year-old man from Milwaukie swerved his Toyota Yaris to avoid hitting the suspect head-on when he was rear-ended by another driver heading northbound, an 18-year-old woman from Beavercreek driving a Ford Escape.

After this initial crash, the hit-and-run suspect reportedly crashed into the Ford before turning around and fleeing the scene north on Highway 213. The Ford, which was totaled, was towed from the scene by Speed's Supertow. Neither victim was injured during the crashes.

Police have not been able to locate the suspect driver or vehicle. Anyone with information should call 911 and reference Case # SP-19-038405.
