REDMOND, OR -- Deschutes County Sheriff's Detectives seized a white Dodge pickup, this week, believed to have been involved in a June hit and run. Investigators say tips from the public led them to the truck and a person of interest.
A 26-year-old Redmond man suffered non-life threatening injuries in the crash on Old Bend Redmond Highway, the evening of June 22. DCSO says Alberto Hernandez was driving northbound when he passed a Dodge pickup. Shortly after completing the pass, the pickup struck the right rear of Hernandez's Subaru, causing him to lose control. His car skidded of the road and into a juniper tree. The driver of the pickup then left the scene.
At the time, the only description of the suspect vehicle was a white 2004-2008 Dodge full sized four-door pickup, with a black bumper, silver rims and "headache rack." Detectives continue to gather evidence and DCSO thanks those who came forward with information.
