The Oregon State Police continue their investigation this morning into a hit and run crash that occurred yesterday about 3:30 pm.
According to the OSP, 67-year old Thomas Mossman was riding his bike westbound on Highway 211 (just west of Palmer Road, map) when he was struck by a motor vehicle. The OSP say Mossman was reportedly riding to a friend's house that was on the south side of the highway about 50 yards from the crash scene. He was flown to OHSU and remains in intensive care with critical injuries.
The vehicle that struck Mossman fled the scene, continuing westbound on Hwy 211. Based on car parts found at the crash scene, the OSP have narrowed their search and now believe the vehicle is likely a sliver-gray colored 1995 Dodge Caravan similar to the one in the photo below (provided by OSP)...
The vehicle is likely to have right front headlight damage and a missing passenger side mirror. OSP is asking anyone with information regarding the crash or the involved vehicle to call OSP Northern Command Center dispatch at 800-452-7888.
