San Francisco police are searching for a driver responsible for fatally injuring a pedestrian earlier this month on Mission Street.

The incident was reported at around 2:20 a.m. Dec. 18 at Mission and 26th streets. After striking the pedestrian, the suspect drove away, traveling north on Mission Street towards 25th Street. The pedestrian died several hours later at San Francisco General Hospital, according to an SFPD press release.

An image of the suspect vehicle appears to show a Volkswagen Passat. Police are asking anyone with information on the vehicle or suspect to call (415) 575-4444 or text-a-tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the start of the message.
