The 27-year-old father of two was walking to work on Highway 11 south of Walla Walla at about 3:30 am. Oregon State Police were called to the highway in Milton-Freewater on a report of a pedestrian hit by a vehicle. Carlos Antonio Perez was found at the scene, but the driver fled.

Authorities are looking for the driver and vehicle, which Police believe to be a dark color SUV or pickup which may have front-end damage.

A GoFundMe has been established by Ramiro Perez, the father of Carlos.

It is with an extremely heavy heart and great sadness that I let everyone know I lost my son Carlos early this morning in a tragic hit and run accident. No-one was prepared for this and I really am at loss for words.

So far, more than $7,500 has been raised to cover funeral expenses. If you'd like to donate, click the GoFundMe button below.
