The San Francisco Police Department is on the lookout for a silver Acura that barreled through a Parking Control Officer's three-wheeled vehicle at around 3:15 this morning and sent the little car -- and the officer within it -- flying.
The collision took place at the intersection of Mission and Third, with the impact occurring northbound on Third; the driver did not stop -- or, apparently, even slow down. The parking control officer received "non life-threatening injuries" according to the SFPD and was treated at General Hospital. The "Cushman Vehicle" he was driving incurred "major" damage.
When asked just what a parking control officer was doing at 3:15 a.m., police spokesman Sergeant Wilfred Williams replied that "there are things to be done" at that hour. Calls to the Department of Parking and Traffic have not yet been returned.
Anyone who sees a silver Acura with damage on its front end and feels it may be the culprit is encouraged to call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip at TIP411.
