Lombard Street hit-and-run leaves pedestrian with life-threatening injuries

A 23-year-old man crossing San Francisco’s Lombard Street was left with life-threatening injuries when a vehicle struck him and fled the scene early Saturday morning, police said Monday.

Around 1:30 a.m., officers responded to a report of a collision involving a seriously injured pedestrian near Lombard and Buchanan streets, according to police.

After an investigation, officers learned that the victim was crossing Lombard Street against a red light when a vehicle heading west on Lombard Street on a green light struck him.

The victim was taken to a hospital, police said.

The vehicle apparently fled the scene and a description was not immediately available.

Anyone with information about the case can call the SFPD 24-hour tipline at (415) 575-4444 or to text a tip to 847411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message. Tipsters have the option of remaining anonymous.
