It's rare -- a fatal hit-run for which there's a clear photo of the missing perpetrator. Do you know where this man is?

COURTESY KOIN-TV-6 NEWS - If you recognize this man - allegedly the driver who walked away from a hit-run accident that killed a pedestrian, at McLoughlin and Holgate Boulevards - please let the police know immediately. After a pedestrian was hit and killed in the southbound lanes of McLoughlin Boulevard at eastbound Holgate Boulevard – reported at 9:49 a.m. on Thursday, September 2 – the intersection was closed down for most of the day while the death was investigated; the resulting traffic jam lasted for hours. The identity of the victim had not yet been made public as this issue of THE BEE went to press.

DAVID F. ASHTON - Investigators from the Portland Police Bureaus Major Crash Team here were looking over the Hyundai; the victims body dented its fender, and smashed into its windshield. The crash was fatal to the person struck; but the driver just got out of the car, and walked away without a shirt. According to workers at the Shell gas station on the corner, the driver of a black Hyundai sedan – with its windshield caved in, from the impact – nervously walked away leaving the wrecked car in the center of McLoughlin. It's unclear how the vehicle then was moved to a spot near the curb on S.E. Holgate Boulevard, in front of the La Carreta restaurant.

A dozen Portland Police Bureau (PPB) officers fanned out over the area, looking for the hit-and-walk-away driver, who quickly departed on foot not wearing a shirt.

Witnesses gave members of the PPB Major Crash Team a good description of the suspect: A man in his 30s, shirtless, with long hair pulled into a bun on the top of his head.

A cell phone photo, taken by an alert driver at the scene, clearly showing the face of the driver exiting the area, was widely circulated – but at this time, the suspect has yet to be located and taken into custody.
