The man was struck by a car about 7:30 p.m. Sunday evening as he reportedly ran across Mission Street near 24th Street to catch a cab. Police say the man was not in the crosswalk when he was hit, and the driver of the car that struck him had a green light.
Following the collision, the man was hospitalized. Police did not have an update on his condition as of Monday morning.
Sgt. Danielle Newman said officers from Mission Station were conducting a decoy operation for pedestrian safety nearby and were able to respond quickly to the scene.
"Officers in plainclothes were several blocks away doing this operation," Newman said.
Officers cited 20 drivers for failing to yield to pedestrians during the operation, Newman said. The operation was cut short due to the collision.
