>Piedmont resident and editor of BikePortland.org has a write up of a hit and run involving a car and a bike that happened Thursday, April 3rd at 5:30pm in front of the Civic Food Mart on Rosa Parks Way.
Last Thursday, 28 year-old Northeast Portland resident Jessica Osborne was riding her bike to the store when she was struck by a car. The driver paused briefly, then left her for dead on the pavement.
So far, the only information they have to go on is that the car is a grey 1990s Buick (sedan or 2-door) with a shattered windshield, and plastic on the front passenger window. The driver is reportedly a 16-20 year-old black male.
“Short of that,” says Sgt. Davis, “without a license plate we’re really stuck.”
If you saw this crash, or know any details at all, please contact Officer Chris Johnson, Portland Police Bureau Traffic Investigations Unit at (503)
823-2103 (refer to case # 0831688).
