A bicyclist is fighting for his life after being struck in the Mission district while running a red light early Sunday morning, police said Tuesday.
The bicyclist, a 46-year-old man, was struck by a cabbie at the intersection of Mission and 14th streets just before 1 a.m.
The cyclist was traveling eastbound on 14th Street and ran a red light when he was broadsided by the taxi, which was traveling northbound on Mission Street, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.
The taxi driver stopped and cooperated with investigators after the accident. He is not facing criminal charges, Dangerfield said.
The cyclist’s condition had improved as of Tuesday, but he remains “in life threatening condition” at San Francisco General Hospital, Dangerfield said.
