A man struck by a hit-and-run driver in San Francisco’s Richmond District earlier this month has died and the suspect remains at large, officials said today.
Ronald Albanesius, 54, was struck by a driver shortly before 1:30 a.m. on Aug. 4 as he crossed Geary Boulevard at Second Avenue and died of his injuries on Thursday.
Police said the driver, who was traveling east on Geary in a dark-colored four-door sedan at the time of the incident, fled the scene immediately afterward. The suspect vehicle, which likely sustained some front-end damage in the collision, was last seen heading south on Arguello Boulevard.
No arrest has been reported.
Albanesius’s death is the second this month caused by a hit-and-run driver.
A driver struck and killed bicyclist Gregory Blackman at the intersection of Turk and Taylor streets at about 5:50 p.m. on Aug. 14.
Driver Michael Smith, 41, was arrested a block from the scene and faces charges including murder, gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence.
Police are also still searching for a suspect in a June 27 hit-and-run collision that killed pedicab operator Kevin Manning. Manning was struck while carrying passengers along Embarcadero.
In addition, police on Tuesday said they were looking for a driver in connection with a hit-and-run collision that occurred on Valencia Street around 5:45 a.m. between 21st and 22nd streets. A bicyclist was take to the hospital, but police did not have an update on their condition. The suspect remained at large as of Tuesday afternoon.
