San Francisco police are asking the public to be on the lookout for a black pickup truck that allegedly smashed into a biker pedaling near the Panhandle neighborhood this weekend.

According to police reports, the cyclist was riding northbound on the 200 block of Masonic Avenue just before 2 a.m. on Sunday when a driver in a black pickup with a camper shell was seen weaving between lanes.

The driver hit the cyclist, then sped off, police said.

The victim, a 23-year-old female, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a head injury. Police said she is expected to survive.

No details on the suspect other than he is a really bad driver.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the

Police Department's anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to TIP411.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
