WHITE CITY, Ore – The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on a Hit and Run which occurred on Hale Way in White City on Wednesday the 13th.
At about 5 p.m. a 911 call to Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon alerted sheriff’s deputies to a crash in the 7800 block of Hale Way in White City. An 18 year old woman had been hit by a car while crossing the road. This is a location where a bike path intersects with the roadway.
The unknown suspect, believed to be driving a smaller passenger car, fled the scene driving east on the bike path. The driver did not stop, or in any way assist the injured woman. Another passerby would find the victim a short time later and call 911. Personnel from Jackson County Fire District 3, and Mercy Flights treated the victim and transported her to an area hospital.
The Sheriff’s Office is asking for assistance from any eye witnesses, or those that may be able to provide information from home surveillance should call 541-774-6800.
