A 27-year old Bend man was struck and injured by a vehicle on NE 4th Street Saturday evening, and police are looking for the motorist involved in the alleged hit-and-run.

When police arrived at the scene near NE 4th Street and NE Addison about 7:35 p.m., October 20, Mariano E. Gaucin had already been transported to St. Charles Medical Center by a private vehicle where he is being treated for injuries sustained in the collision, Bend Police Lt. Ken Stenkamp said.

NE 4th Street between Butler Market Road and Xerxes was closed during the night to allow better examination during daylight hours.

The lieutenant asks anyone with information about the ongoing investigation to contact police at 541-693-6911.
