A 30-year-old man is in critical condition following a late-night hit-and-run at Haight & Masonic.

According to police, the victim was struck at 12:45am by the driver of a black older model Lincoln Town Car heading eastbound on Haight Street. The driver fled the scene along Haight following the collision, and has not been apprehended.

The Haight's upcoming Public Realm Plan promises changes on the way to the busy Haight & Masonic intersection, which combines fast-moving vehicle traffic with heavy pedestrian use. Current proposals to calm traffic and improve pedestrian safety include sidewalk extensions to shorten pedestrian crossing times, but the project isn't set to break ground until 2018
