Hit-and-run victim's family offers reward leading to driver's arrest
Conor McMahon.

The family of 20-year-old man injured in a hit-and-run crash is offering a reward for information leading to the driver’s arrest.

Conor McMahon was hit on North Lombard in Portland on New Year’s Eve. He’d been walking with a friend. McMahon was seriously injured, suffering a shattered pelvis, a broken nose and his two front teeth were knocked out.

Investigators say that on New Year’s Eve, a man pulled up in a van asking if McMahon and his friend needed a ride. They said no, and that’s when investigators say the driver pulled away, did a U-turn, and intentionally ran McMahon down.

The suspect’s vehicle is described as a medium to dark-colored Dodge Caravan or similar model vehicle with two front doors and a rear slider. Police said it appeared to have a fare meter, similar to a taxi, on the dashboard.

Crime Stoppers of Oregon is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the case. McMahon’s family is offering an additional cash reward. Tipsters must speak to the detective to be eligible for the reward. You can leave a Crime Stoppers tip online; Text CRIMES (274637) and in the subject line put 823HELP, followed by the tip; or call 503-823-HELP (4357) and leave the tip information.

Investigators aren't sure whether the suspect is white, Hispanic or Middle Eastern. They do know that he's 35 to 40 years old with dark, short hair that was buzzed on the sides. He also had a slight mustache and goatee.
