A man witnesses claim swerved and drove on the wrong side of the road in a deliberate effort to run down four bicycle riders
last night is still on the loose.
The motorist of a blue Nissan Rogue
struck four cyclists over a five-minute period in Mission and Potrero Hill before crashing the car at 17th and Missouri and fleeing on foot. KTVU-TV is reporting the white male left a wallet behind in the SUV -- containing an ID. It is unclear if the ID, or the vehicle, belongs to the suspect.
Police spokeswoman Lieutenant Lyn Tomioka told SF Weekly
that the driver would not be charged with "hit-and-run" but the more serious "aggravated assault," as he appeared to be targeting his victims.
