Police investigating two hit-and-run accidents, one fatal 

Police are hunting for two remorseless drivers who allegedly struck two pedestrians in San Francisco and slammed on the gas rather than stopped to help.

One pedestrian was killed while the other was critically injured in separate incidents in the Mission and Tenderloin neighborhoods, police said.

The first hit-and-run occurred around 5 a.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Hyde Street and Golden Gate Avenue, police said. The victim was crossing Golden Gate Avenue “when a newer modeled silver 4-door vehicle (possibly an Oldsmobile) turned left from Hyde onto Golden Gate running the victim over,” police said.

The victim was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said. The partial plate on the vehicle is 6AQ, they said.

In the second incident, which occurred around 4:16 a.m. Saturday, a 54-year-old man was found unconscious at 19th and Folsom streets, police said, and the medical examiner said his injuries suggest he was struck by a car.

The man died at the scene and no witnesses have come forward with any information on the vehicle involved, police said.

Police are asking for the public’s help in gathering information on both of these incidents. Witnesses are urged to contact San Francisco Police Department’s Hit and Run Detail at (415) 553-1215. Witnesses may also send a text-a-tip at TIP411 or the anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
