Based on evidence left at the scene, CCSO detectives are looking for a 2002-2005 Ford Escape SUV, or similar vehicle, with fresh passenger side damage, including missing a passenger side mirror.  The collision likely occurred around 3 a.m. along a route that extends into the residential communities of Felida, Salmon Creek, and south Ridgefield.

If anyone locates a vehicle matching this description, the CCSO would ask that they contact 3-1-1 in Clark County (non-emergency line).  The CCSO has provided a photo of a like vehicle (it is not necessarily the same color, just style).

The female struck in the collision continues to recover at an area hospital with significant injuries.  She was identified as Debora A. Chillura, age 62. Chillura is from the Portland Metro Area, and was a transient at the time of the collision.
