WILSONVILLE, Ore. – Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who caused a multi-vehicle crash along I-5 south of Wilsonville Wednesday morning.

The crash happened around 9 a.m., near the 282 interchange. Investigators said a gray or silver sport utility vehicle, similar to a Dodge Durango, collided with a Toyota Corolla and a Honda Civic, and then left the scene.
