Bicyclist struck by hit-and-run driver in SOMA


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A bicyclist was injured Tuesday evening after being struck by a hit-and-run driver.

Police say that shortly before 8 p.m. on Tuesday, a driver was traveling in the wrong direction in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood near Stevenson and Sixth streets.

The driver then struck the cyclist, a 40-year-old woman, in the roadway and then fled the scene.

Police described the suspect vehicle as a white four-door sedan. The driver, a woman believed to be in her 20s, was possibly fleeing from a prior hit-and-run collision with a bus when she then sped onto Stevenson Street, according to police.
