Man, 70, injured in hit-and-run 

A 70-year-old man was struck and injured by a car while crossing Alemany Boulevard at Geneva Avenue on Monday morning — the latest pedestrian-related incident in a city that has seen three walkers killed since December.

The man, whose name has not been released, was walking across Alemany Boulevard when a driver heading northbound on Geneva Boulevard struck him and fled the scene. The victim suffered "nonthreatening injuries" and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco Police Department spokesman Steve Mannina said.

In 2005, the latest year data is available, 699 pedestrians were involved in nonfatal collisions, up 5 percent from the reported 665 incidents in 2004, according to The City’s Department of Parking and Traffic’s 2005 Collision Report.

Mannina said there are no additional details on the driver and vehicle involved in Monday’s hit-and-run incident.

"The matter is under investigation," he added.
