Following the initial on-scene investigation, OSP troopers believe the involved vehicle may be a silver-gray colored mid-1990's Dodge Caravan. The vehicle should have right front headlight area damage, is missing the passenger side mirror, and should be missing the right side door molding. The sex and identity of the operator is unknown.
On March 22, 2011 at approximately 3:30 p.m. THOMAS CHRISTOPHER MOSSMAN, age 67, from Molalla, was riding a dark colored bicycle westbound on Highway 211 just west of S. Palmer Road near milepost 10. MOSSMAN was struck by an unidentified vehicle and driver that continued westbound without stopping.
MOSSMAN was transported by LifeFlight to Oregon Health Sciences University. He was wearing a bicycle helmet and was reportedly riding to a friend's house near the scene. A family representative advised he is still in critical condition.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation or the identity of the involved vehicle and driver is asked to call OSP at 1-800-452-7888.
