Investigators say 21-year-old Abaynesh Awokie, of Portland, was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver near Northeast 82nd Avenue and Alderwood Road.

Her body was found just after 6 a.m.

The Medical Examiner's Office reports she died of head injuries.

Port of Portland investigators are looking for a larger vehicle, possibly a large tractor trailer or a shuttle bus, that may have damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
