Lake Oswego police looking for hit-and-run suspect
A Lake Oswego woman was injured in a hit-and-run just over a week ago and police are asking for help with identifying the driver.
The victim was walking her dog along Del Prado Street in the Mountain Park neighborhood just after 8 p.m. Saturday, March 27. According to a press release, she was "facing the oncoming traffic lane, when she heard a vehicle approaching from behind her that seemed to be playing loud music. She was then struck from behind by a vehicle, which had to have driven on the wrong side of the road to strike her."
The driver of the vehicle did not stop and drove away.
Lake Oswego Police Sgt. Tom Hamann said the victim was injured but did not suffer significant injuries and the dog was not harmed.
The LOPD is encouraging anyone with information regarding this incident to call 503-635-0238.
"Especially when we have bad weather, it's important to just be aware of traffic and pay attention. Even if the driver is at fault, the pedestrian is going to lose in that scenario," Hamann said. "Just be aware of your surroundings and watch out. Drivers really need to pay attention and limit distractions and watch out for pedestrians."
