Two $10K rewards offered for S.F. hit-and-run drivers

Two $10,000 rewards are being offered for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of those responsible for two fatal hit-and-run incidents in San Francisco last weekend, police said Friday.

The separate incidents killed a Canadian Navy lieutenant and a 77-year-old San Francisco resident.

Canadian Naval officer Mark Ashley, 27, was struck and killed by a Mercedes Benz while crossing the Embarcadero early Saturday.

Someone driving a silver or gray Mercedes Benz with front-end and windshield damage struck the Victoria, British Columbia, native at around 1:50 a.m. at the intersection of Howard Street, police said.

The driver of the Mercedes continued southbound on the Embarcadero and was not located. Ashley was pronounced dead at the scene.

Then, early Sunday morning, Roger Tennyson, 77, of San Francisco, was struck and killed while he was getting out of his car near his house in the 100 block of Sanchez Street.

He was struck at about 1:45 a.m. by an unknown type of vehicle, possibly a Honda, police said.

Tennyson died at the scene.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is urged to contact the Hit and Run Detail at (415) 553-1651 or the confidential tip line at (415) 575-4444.
