Portland police searching for suspect's car after 34-year-old man killed in hit-and-run


PORTLAND, Oregon — Portland police are searching for a car that struck and killed a 34-year-old man in a hit-and-run.

Investigators say a white, four-door Honda Civic from the mid-2000s struck the man at Southeast 29th Avenue and Stark Street just after 2 a.m. Sunday. Witnesses told them the car did not stop, but kept driving westbound on Stark. The victim was taken to a Portland hospital, where he died.

The vehicle reportedly had a license plate similar to IVD1036, from an unknown state. Police say the car may have front-end damage or a broken windshield, and that anyone seeing it should call 911.

Police identified the victim as Christopher Brian Chandler.
