An Oregon State Police (OSP) investigation presented before a Clackamas County Grand Jury led to the indictment and subsequent arrest of a driver for felony hit and run related to an October 31, 2009 serious injury crash south of Aurora.
 
LARRY SCOTT VANG, age 47, from Salem, was arrested April 7, 2010 by Gresham Police Department on a warrant charging Failure to Perform the Duties of a Driver to Injured Persons, a Class B felony.  VANG was indicted March 19, 2010 by a Clackamas County Grand Jury.  He was lodged in Multnomah County Jail and later released pending an appearance in Clackamas County Circuit Court.
 
On October 31, 2009 at approximately 1:00 a.m. OSP Northern Command Center dispatch and Clackamas County 9-1-1 began receiving reports of a possible intoxicated man walking down the center of Highway 99E near Lone Elder Road just north of Aurora.  Officers from Aurora and Canby police departments initially responded and found a seriously injured 23-year old Aurora man lying on the south side of Highway 99E.  No vehicle was found at the scene.
 
OSP troopers responded and initiated an investigation that identified VANG as the driver of a 2007 Toyota RAV sport utility vehicle that struck the man and failed to remain at the scene.
