LINCOLN CITY - Lincoln City Police are asking for public help in locating the driver of a vehicle that officers said struck and injured a 21-year old woman.

According to police, at about 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 16, Tiffany Krisher was in the crosswalk at Highway 101 and East Devils Lake Road when she was struck. Krisher suffered non-life threatening injures including a broken nose.

"She was very fortunate," said Bud Lane, Lincoln City Police detective.

Lane said officers are looking for a dark jeep, possibly a Jeep Cherokee, last seen leaving the area.

The vehicle involved was going northbound from Highway 101 to Devils Lake Road and proceeded eastbound on Devils Lake Road without stopping, according to Lane.

"If anyone saw or heard anything about this incident, we are asking that they call Lincoln City Police as soon as possible at 541-994-3636," said Lane.

Tammy Shinn, Krisher's mother, has placed posters around town offering an undetermined reward that would lead to the arrest and conviction of the driver involved in the hit and run.

    Robrowell I wanted to say thank you so much for the lead and I will make sure the police will look in on it. I won't rest until the person who hit my precious daughter and than left her alone in her own pool of blood is behind bars. I need to find this person and again thank you.

    Yes Holly you are correct my daughter Tiffany is 23 yrs old not 21 yrs old. I need to find the person who did this. All I can think about is justice and I can't sleep until this person is behind bars. I don't want anyone else to go through what my daughter and our family are going through. I can't understand why this person didn't stop. I understand the whole flight or fight concept but I'm sorry I just can't except the fact that they left my precious daughter laying in her own blood. How they can act like nothing was done. I just don't get it.

    I am pretty sure Tiffany is 23, not 21. There aren't any traffic cameras in that area?? That is the biggest intersection in town.
