The Portland Police Bureau just released a statement and photo they hope will help them find the suspect in a fatal hit-and-run case that happened on NE 122nd Avenue last week.
On Thursday, August 27th at 2:15am, 52-year old James Wagner was struck and killed by someone driving what investigators believe to be a four-door Toyota Corolla similar to the one in the photo above. The police also say that the vehicle would have glass broken out of the headlight on the passenger side.
Wagner was hit from behind while riding in the bike lane near the northbound lanes of 122nd Ave, just north of the I-84 overpass. The person driving the car did not stop. Police say witnesses report that the motor vehicle turned to the west somewhere north of Fremont Street.
