PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland Police are again asking the public for help in finding out exactly who is responsible for an injury hit-and-run crash following a new development in the case.
On February 23th, police said 37-year-old Sulema Hernandez-Rivas of Southeast Portland was hit near Southeast 68th Avenue and Division Street just after 3 a.m.
She was taken to a hospital and reported to be in serious condition at the time.
The next day, Don Jeffrey Porter, 49, turned himself in, with police saying he told them he "may be" involved in the incident. His SUV, a 2013 Ford Escape, was recovered from a body shop.
But on Thursday, police said that "despite having consistent damage on his vehicle," a mirror found at the scene could not have come from his car.
Police now say they are looking into the possibility that more than one vehicle is involved in the incident.
Investigators said they are looking for a dark-colored 2005-2007 Ford Escape SUV, "which should be missing its driver's side mirror and would have minor damage along the driver's side front and side of the vehicle."
Porter was charged with felony hit and run, hindering prosecution and tampering with physical evidence. Police did not say if the discovery would affect any of the charges against Porter.
Police said anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Officer Erik Koppang at 503-823-2216 or send an email to CrimeTips@PortlandOregon.gov, and reference case number 13-15295.
