Bend Police now have a vehicle description in a fatal hit and run from late Wednesday night. Police say the vehicle that may have been involved in the accident is a 2007 to 2010 GM pick-up truck with front end damage. The Bend Police Department is asking for the public's help in finding the suspect who hit and killed Anthony Martin, 48, who was walking his bike across Third Street near the Wagner Mall Wednesday night at 11pm. Officer Elizabeth Lawrence has more details: “I believe it was more at the middle of the road. He wasn’t quite at a crosswalk and he wasn’t at an intersection.” Lawrence says they've seen several hit and run accidents in recent years and reminds motorists that you're required to stay on the scene to exchange information. And if there's an injury you're required to give medical aid. Local law enforcement officials have been success in the past in locating the suspects in serious hit and run crashes.
