SF hit-and-run leaves bicyclist with life-threatening injuries

A bicyclist is fighting for her life after being struck by a vehicle in a hit-and-run crash in The City’s Mid-Market area Tuesday night, according to San Francisco police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan.

SFPD received a call at 7:54 p.m. alerting them that a white vehicle traveling the wrong way on Stevenson Street — which runs east to west — between 6th and 7th streets hit the bicyclist on the roadway.

“It appears that the windshield did shatter on the vehicle when it struck the victim,” Gatpandan said.

The bicyclist was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, Gatpandan said.

The hit-and-run driver also  struck a second vehicle but it was unknown Tuesday night whether it was parked or in motion, and if another person was injured.

Police did not have a confirmed suspect description Tuesday night.bicyclistmid-MarketSan Francisco General HospitalSFPD
