Portland Police Bureau Fatal Crash Team investigators have been working with the Oregon State Police Crime Lab to identify the vehicle that struck and killed 63-year-old Nancy Schoeffler (pronounced SHEFF-LER).

The Crime Lab examined evidence collected from the scene and has been able to determine that the vehicle of interest is a 1996 - 2008 black Honda or Acura sedan with damage to the hood and front windshield.

This investigation started on Saturday March 31, 2012, at approximately 11:20 p.m., when Portland Police officers responded to the report of someone lying in the road on in the 2800 block of West Burnside Street. Arriving officers and medical personnel located 63-year-old Nancy Margaret Schoeffler deceased of her injuries.

Traffic investigators have determined that Nancy was crossing West Burnside Street on foot when she was struck by a vehicle that fled the area westbound on Burnside.
