Police Need Help Identifying Hit And Run Driver

Gresham Police is still searching for the suspect vehicle involved in a January 28 fatal hit-and-run crash on NE Burnside Rd. 

The crash killed 60-year-old Gresham resident Dennis Yamnitsky and authorities are hopeful the public can help identify the car and driver. 

The car is described as a light-colored, possibly silver or champagne, four-door import sedan. There is likely damage to the car's driver-side front quarter panel. 

At approximately 6:40 p.m. on Jan. 28, officers responded to the report of a pedestrian being struck by a car near McDonalds on NE Burnside Rd. The involved driver fled the scene and Yamnitsky later died from his injuries. 

Anyone who has information about this incident is asked to call police non-emergency at 503.823.3333 or the Gresham Police tip line at 503.618.2719.
