Suspect Sought In Hit-And-Run Of Blind Man.

January 17, 2006. - Portland,OR,USA.

PORTLAND -- Portland police are looking for a driver that hit a blind man and didn't stop. The victim was crossing the street when it happened.

The blind man was headed to a bus stop near Northeast 33rd and Sumner after being at a stamp collectors' meeting last Tuesday night when he became disoriented.

The next thing he knew he was laying on the pavement, writhing in pain. The victim was left battered and bruised and with crushed legs. The driver never stopped.

Police are investigating but don't have much to go on. Witnesses only remember seeing a dark, mid-sized sedan near the scene.
