Police release new details about hit-and-run vehicle of interest

Posted: Updated:

The Portland Police Bureau released new information Thursday about a car involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash.

Nancy Schoeffler was hit and killed on March 31.

When police arrived to the scene in the 2800 block of West Burnside Street that night, they found the 63-year-old woman had already died from her injuries.

Traffic investigators determined that Schoeffler was crossing West Burnside on foot when she was hit by a car that fled the area westbound on Burnside, police said.

Since then, local detectives have been working with the Oregon State Police Crime Lab to identify the vehicle that hit her.

Investigators determined that the vehicle of interest is a 1996 to 2008 black Honda or Acura sedan with damage to the hood and front windshield, police told FOX 12.

Traffic investigators learned that shortly after the crash, two women were seen arguing at the QFC parking lot at Southwest Barnes Road and Miller Road, which is two miles west of the crash location.

The women are described as two white females in their mid to late 20s, blonde hair, short and stocky, wearing baseball caps, possibly with Portland Timbers logos on the caps, investigators said.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in this case or any unsolved felony.

Those with information can call 503-823-HELP (4357) to leave a tip anonymously.
