OSP Asking For Public's Help To Locate Commercial Truck
And Driver Involved In Early Morning Injury Hit & Run - Interstate 5 South Of Roseburg
Oregon State Police (OSP) is asking for the public's help to find and identify the commercial vehicle and driver involved in an early Thursday morning hit & run crash that critically injured an adult male pedestrian along Interstate 5 south of Roseburg.
On June 27, 2013 between 2:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m., a male pedestrian was walking on the southbound shoulder of Interstate 5 near milepost 116.
Evidence at the scene indicates an unknown commercial truck pulling a semi-trailer struck the pedestrian and then the center concrete barrier before continuing southbound without remaining at the scene. The commercial truck may have fresh damage to the driver side left front corner and/or side. There is no confirmed color or other description.
The unidentified male pedestrian, believed to be transient, was transported by ground ambulance to Mercy Medical Center and then transferred by air ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend. The man had no identification and OSP is following up on leads to positively identify him.
OSP troopers from the Roseburg Area Command office were assisted at the scene by Douglas County Sheriff's Office and local EMS responders. OSP Senior Trooper Robert Gorman is the lead investigator.
Anyone with information to help identify the involved vehicle and driver is asked to contact OSP Southern Command Center dispatch at 800-442-2068.
