Cyclist Injured In Hit And Run At Oak And Scott

By Nuala Sawyer - Published on January 07, 2014.
A female cyclist was hit on Sunday night biking along the Wiggle through the Oak and Scott intersection, making it the second known hit and run at that intersection in the past few weeks.

Shortly after 9pm on January 5th, a dark grey sedan heading south on Scott Street turned left onto Oak, colliding with the cyclist in the middle of the intersection before taking off. The victim, a 26-year-old female, escaped with minor injuries, though was nearly run over by the car as it sped away from the scene. Witnesses on the scene gave statements to police, but the identity of the driver and the make and model of the car are still unknown. SFPD Officer Albie Esparza told us that, "given the fact that it occurred early in the night and it's a pretty busy street, there's a good chance someone somewhere might have seen something." Of particular interest is a car that chased after the sedan in pursuit of a license plate number, but never returned to the scene. Anyone who has information on the accident, or a business that may have video footage of that intersection, is encouraged to call SFPD’s anonymous tip line at 415-731-2865. Oak and Scott is the same location where a pedestrian was seriously injured in a hit and run in the beginning of December, and where a cyclist was assaulted last May. SFMTA has identified it in the past as being a problematic intersection, which recent events have confirmed. Despite being home to the first green bicycle box in the city, the safety of pedestrians and cyclists continues to be an issue at this intersection that thousands pass through every day.
