On Saturday, at approximately 1:07 p.m., a 27-year-old man was hit by an unidentified driver in a vehicle police only described as "an SUV". The crash occurred at Geary and Mason streets, a block away from Union Square.

The driver fled the scene, leaving the pedestrian behind with life-threatening injuries. He was transported to a hospital. Since then, "the victim's status has been upgraded to non-life threatening," SFPD spokesperson Officer Adam Lobsinger told Hoodline on Monday.

No arrest has been made.

The intersection is identified as a high-injury corridor under the city's Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024.

Anyone who has information about this hit-and-run is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
