PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police are investigating a deadly hit-and-run crash early Saturday morning on Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard near Southeast Clinton Street. 

Police said a person was found dead in the street around 4:38 a.m. 

The victim was identified by police Wednesday as Austin Boyd, 23. 

Investigators believe Boyd was in or near a crosswalk when he was hit by a vehicle that apparently fled the scene, the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) said in a news release. 

PPB's Major Crash Team blocked off a section of Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard for about three hours to talk to witnesses and gather evidence. 

Police said evidence collected at the scene suggests the suspect vehicle is a white or light-colored 1993 to 1997 Honda Passport or Isuzu Rodeo. There may be damage to the front of the vehicle on the right side, including a shattered turn signal indicator beneath the bumper, police said. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact PPB at 503-823-2103.
