BEAVERTON, Ore. -- A man was struck and run over by a pickup truck after an argument with its driver last month in Beaverton, police said. The driver then left the scene and was not located.

Officers were called at about 8:30 p.m. on July 19 to the report of a hit-and run at Southwest Nadina Court and Southwest Lombard Avenue, according to spokesman Mike Rowe of the Beaverton Police Department.

The victim had been in a verbal altercation with the driver and passenger in a blue Silverado pickup, Rowe said. The victim began to walk away but the suspect drove toward him.

"The suspect drove into the victim with the front bumper of the truck and the front tire rolled over the victim's chest," Rowe said. The suspect then fled the area in the truck west on Southwest Lombard Ave."

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment and released several days later.

The driver was described as a Hispanic male between 18 and 21 years old, about 5-foot-7, with a thin build. The passenger was described as a Hispanic female between 18 and 21 years old, with a petite build and reddish blond streaks in her hair.

Police released composite sketches (above) based on the victim's description. Anyone with information was asked to call police at (503) 629-0111.
