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.

The hit and run happened on Aug. 21 at about 9:50 p.m. when police at the Bayview station were called to the intersection of Alameda and San Bruno Avenue where there was reportedly a "man down." 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.

Witnesses described the suspect vehicle as as a white, compact, SUV similar to a Rav-4. The vehicle is possibly a two-door model with a spare tire attached to the rear of the vehicle. The spare tire is encased in a hard cover matching the white vehicle paint.

Investigators also have other evidence that says the suspect vehicle in the area of Alameda Avenue and San Bruno Street between 9:40 p.m. and 9:55 p.m on that day.

The victim is still in the hospital with critical injuries.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact Inspector Kevin Horan of the Mission Station Investigation Team at 558-5404, the Anonymous Tip Line at 575-4444 or Text-a-Tip to "TIP411" and begin the text message with "SFPD."

  • 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.'"
