PORTLAND, Ore. -- A Portland family is seeking justice after their loved one was run down and left for dead.

“It’s really, really messed up,“ said Carlos Rivera.

Rivera’s brother, Cesar, was near the corner of Burnside and Linden, in Gresham, when a car drove onto the sidewalk and hit him late Tuesday night.

“I can’t imagine someone doing that,” said Rivera.

Detectives say the driver did not even slow down to check on the 23-year-old.

“To me, it’s scum,” said Rivera.

Cesar suffered some broken ribs, a punctured lung, a broken collarbone, and injuries to his face.

“I’m so sad this happened to my little kid,” said mom Janira Carballo. “It’s not fair…he’s a good boy.”

Authorities say the suspect vehicle is a sedan. It should have damage to the front end and windshield.

The family is asking anyone with information about the case to contact investigators at 503-618-2719.

“It’s not right to hit someone and leave them there,” said Rivera.
