Wanted: Unidentified, Reckless Driver Who Hit and Injured Bicyclist (Photo) - 05/13/19

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a reported hit and run crash involving a driver and a bicyclist in unincorporated Washington County, northwest of Forest Grove.

According to witness reports, an unidentified man was driving a newer Mercedes convertible around 2:00 p.m. on NW Hillside Road when he hit a bicyclist stopped on the shoulder.  The victim was checking his map when the unidentified driver hit him somewhere near the intersection with NW Clapshaw Hill Road.  The victim was knocked to the ground, his clothing torn and was bleeding from the leg.  The suspect drove off, making no attempt to stop and check on him, and gave the bicyclist “the finger” as he drove off.

The suspect was also seen driving recklessly, swerving into oncoming lanes of traffic.  A motorcyclist told deputies he was almost run off the road and nearly hit by the same driver on NW Old Clapshaw Hill Road.

A short video was obtained by one of the witnesses of the suspect vehicle.

SUSPECT DESCRIPTION:

  • White man, 60s
  • Baseball cap
  • Thick “Tom Selleck” mustache
  • Newer Mercedes convertible
  • Champagne colored

Anyone with information about this vehicle or driver is asked to contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office by calling non-emergency dispatch at 503-629-0111.
