Though those who stay at an accident often don't even get a ticket, some still hit and run -- and face jail

DAVID F. ASHTON - Judging by the condition of this Toyota, the vehicle that hit it and then fled likely also has substantial damage. Police and medical services were called to the intersection of S.E. Woodstock Boulevard at 57th Avenue on Tuesday, March 28, at 11:21 a.m., after a car collision.

According to a Portland Police Bureau East Precinct officer, a white Toyota four-door sedan was eastbound on Woodstock Boulevard. As it crossed 57th Avenue, a southbound red car raced into the intersection and slammed into the Toyota broadside, ripping the outer door panel off the car.

Stunned victims of the crash said the red car turned and sped off eastbound on Woodstock Boulevard and disappeared.

Although it was not thought to be a traumatic injury, one occupant of the Toyota was transported to the hospital for medical evaluation and treatment.

The hit-and-run car and driver remains on the loose – and should have substantial front-end damage. If you think you recognize the offending vehicle's description, contact Police Non-Emergency at 503/823-3333.
