Portland police are on the hunt for an alleged hit-and-run driver after a female pedestrian was injured in Portland.
North Precinct officers responded to the corner of Northeast Klickitat Street and 15th Avenue in the city's Sabin neighborhood around 4:19 p.m. on Friday, April 5, according to a news release.
"The vehicle involved left the scene," police say. "The investigation is continuing."
