Lane Co. Sheriff's Office

Lane County Sheriff’s Office detectives are asking for the public’s assistance locating a late 90s or early 2000s gray Toyota Tundra, pictured, and the male driver and passenger who transported an injured female to Sacred Heart University Hospital in Eugene this morning around 4:30 a.m. 

Preliminary investigation indicates the woman was picked up in the River Road area and transported to the hospital, but the driver of the truck left before additional information could be obtained. 

Injuries indicate the female may have been struck by a vehicle.  The female victim was pronounced deceased at the hospital and Lane County Sheriff's Office is investigating her death with the Lane County Medical Examiner's Office.  Deputies are working to notify the victim's next of kin prior to releasing her name.   

The photo of the truck (attached) was taken in the River Road area where the female was thought to be picked up, and matches the description of the one that dropped the female off at the hospital.   

If you know the identity of the driver and/or passenger of the truck that took the woman to the hospital or have information on the above described incident, please call the Lane County Sheriff’s Office at 541-682-4150 then press 1, and reference case # 20-4280.
