The driver of an SUV that mowed down a pedestrian Saturday is still at large, but the victim’s status has been “upgraded to non-life threatening.”
There are scant details available regarding a Saturday afternoon hit-and-run that took place shortly after 1 p.m. But what few details there are, Hoodline has them in their report on an unidentified SUV driver who hit a 27-year-old male, only to then drive away as the victim suffered what SFPD called “life-threatening injuries.”
In the 48 hours since the accident, the victim's condition has at least improved. SFPD spokesperson Officer Adam Lobsinger tells Hoodline that the badly injured pedestrian’s “status has been upgraded to non-life threatening" as of today.
There has been no description of the SUV, and no arrests have been made in the case.
As Hoodline points out, the area is considered a “identified as a high-injury corridor under the city's Vision Zero plan.” That said, essentially all of the Tenderloin and Union Square-area streets have that same high-injury designation.
Anyone with information about the accident is encouraged to call SFPD's anonymous Tip Line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411.
