ORIGINAL POST:

The driver of a blue SUV or sedan reportedly drove onto a sidewalk near SW 6th and SW Montgomery St around 10 am, hitting at least three women before driving off.

According to witnesses in the area, it appears that the driver "intentionally" ran over the victims, but Portland Police Bureau spokesperson Chris Burley has said he cannot confirm this. At a 11:15 press conference, Burley said officers have yet to track down the car and/or the subject. The three women have been sent to the hospital, and two of them have "serious, life-threatening injuries."

Witness Christopher Bond says he says driver was going about 35-40 mph when they hit the victims, and that the vehicle is bluish-purple with tinted windows. He didn't catch a glimpse of the driver.
