San Francisco police are asking for your help in tracking down a driver who allegedly hit a 36-year-old man and before speeding off, leaving him in critical condition.

When police arrived, they found the victim, a San Francisco man, lying in the roadway. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Investigators have determined that the man was hit by a driver who fled the scene; the circumstances around the incident are still being investigated, however, police do believe the motorist might have intentionally mowed down the pedestrian, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
