BPD Seeks Info On Hit And Run

BEND, OR -- Bend Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a vehicle involved in a hit-and-run early Sunday morning, July 3. At approximately 3:13 a.m., police responded to a report of a vehicle-versus-pedestrian accident in front of the Deschutes County Circuit Court on NW Bond Street in Bend. 

An investigation determined that a 27-year-old was crossing Bond outside of a crosswalk when a white or silver SUV traveling north from downtown swerved and brushed the pedestrian. The victim and witnesses reported the SUV had swerved toward her and accelerated, and that the vehicle brushed her right leg and hip area, causing her to fall to the ground. The victim sustained minor injuries. 

The driver of the SUV did not stop. Bend Police, as well as other local law enforcement agencies, attempted to locate the vehicle but were unsuccessful. 

Investigators gathered surveillance video from multiple locations, but the license plate of the vehicle is not visible due to video quality. The vehicle is believed to be a white or silver 4-door SUV, possibly Audi Q5 or Q7, Hyundai Tucson or Kia Sportage. It may have some damage to its passenger side hood, body or mirror. 

Bend Police asks anyone who may have information about this accident or the suspect vehicle to please contact the nonemergency dispatch line at 541-693-6911.
