A man was critically injured in a hit-and-run in the Mission early Thursday morning, police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was walking across the street at Valencia Street and Clinton Park about 2:44 a.m. when he was struck by a black or blue 4-door sedan, Shyy said.

The victim is in critical condition at the hospital after suffering serious head injuries.

The sedan continued to drive on southbound on Valencia. No arrest has been made.

Police believe that the vehicle will have damage on its front passenger side and possibly a broken or shattered windshield, Shyy said. There was debris from a vehicle found at the scene but police are not sure it is from the suspect vehicle.

Anyone with information on this vehicle is encouraged to call police at (415) 575-4444 or by text at 411TIP with “SFPD” in the message.
