UPDATE: Community holds benefit for hit-and-run victim

The Gresham Outlook posted this story about the community of family, friends, and neighbors that is pulling for hit-and-run victim Jerome Calcagno. Calcagno was hit while crossing the road in October. To our knowledge, the driver never stopped.

Let’s grow this already large community to include those who are concerned about tragedy, and let’s find the person who did this. Hit-and-run accidents are inexcusable. Accidents happen, but this is all the more unfortunate because Calcagno was a pedestrian and had no source of protection from the impact. And no matter what the excuse may be, there is absolutely NEVER a reason to leave the scene after an accident.

Please, if you know anything, contact the police at 503-618-2719.
