Clackamas County Sheriff's Office detectives are asking for the public's help to ID the driver of a suspect SUV -- as well as a potential witness vehicle -- in a July 23 hit-and-run that left a 60-year-old man severely injured.

The hit-and-run occurred at approximately 7:46 p.m. on Thursday, July 23, on SE Sunnyside Road near SE Scooter Lane in Damascus. The suspect vehicle -- an SUV believed to be a 2000-2006 Chevy Suburban or Tahoe, dark in color (possibly black or dark blue), with aftermarket chrome wheels -- struck a 60-year-old male Damascus resident as the victim rode his bicycle.

The victim reportedly somersaulted over the front of the bike and hit the roadway, leaving the victim with severe head and internal injuries. The suspect vehicle then fled westbound on Sunnyside Road.

Surveillance photos of the suspect vehicle are attached. It may have passenger-side damage.

The victim was transported to OHSU for treatment of severe injuries.

Detectives are also looking for any additional witnesses to the hit-and-run, including the driver of a red pickup truck that passed the crime scene shortly after the bicyclist was hit (photo attached).
