SW Redmond apparent hit-and-run crash leaves woman seriously hurt; police seek witnesses

(Update: Adding video, comments from resident near crash scene)

REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) – Redmond police are seeking witnesses or any information after a woman was found lying in a southwest Redmond street early Tuesday morning with life-threatening injuries from an apparent hit-and-run vehicle-pedestrian crash.

Redmond police and Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies responded around 3:40 a.m. to the report of a woman lying in the roadway near Southwest Obsidian Avenue and 25th Street, Captain Devin Lewis said.

Based on the initial investigation, the unidentified woman apparently was involved in a vehicle-vs.-pedestrian crash, sustaining life-threatening injuries, Lewis said. She was taken to St. Charles Bend for treatment.

“At this point in the investigation, a suspect vehicle and other involved parties have yet to be identified,” the police captain said.

A homeowner who lives along Obsidian Avenue told NewsChannel 21 that her camera's security doorbell may have captured footage of the hit-and-run.

In the video, which the homeowner provided to police, she said a dark object can be seen lying on the street. The homeowner also said the footage shows the woman was lying in the road for about 20 minutes before a passing driver stopped and called police.

NewsChannel 21 also was sent a video by a viewer who was in the area. In it, a white truck can be seen, and the viewer said the driver of that truck was the one who called for help.

Neighbors who wished not to be identified also were shocked to hear the woman was left lying on the road after being hit.

Police are looking for the suspect driver and are working to identify the woman. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash are asked to call county dispatchers at 541-693-6911.
