Salem police on Saturday asked the public’s help to locate a 1998 Chevrolet pickup truck that they say struck and killed a Keizer woman in northeast Salem and left the scene.
Cynthia Perry-Rizzo, 66, was found lying in the 4000 block of Northeast Sunnyview Road about 5 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28. She died the next day at Salem Health hospital. Police aren’t releasing details about what investigators have established about the timing of the accident.
Police on Saturday released photos of the pickup truck they said were taken before the collision. They said the vehicle is a 1998 Chevrolet 1500 pickup with an extended cab and deep blue in color. The pickup has Oregon license plate 604 FWD and would have a damaged driver’s side headlight, police said. The vehicle is registered in the city of Salem, police said.
Police are asking anyone who knows the location of the vehicle to call the Salem Police Department at 503-588-6123 (option 1) and refer to case 22-2177.
In 2021, Perry-Rizzo told Salem Reporter about living homeless for three years because of a disability after a career as a geriatric nurse. She shared her account as part of a report on people being allowed to temporarily camp at the Oregon State Fairgrounds Pavilion.
