If you were standing at the corner of Hyde and Golden Gate at 5:04 a.m. on July 28 -- and there must be some of you -- then the San Francisco Police are begging for your help.

At around that time, a relatively new, silver four-door vehicle believed to possibly be an Oldsmobile barreled through the crosswalk, running down a man in his early 30s walking to work. The victim remains in San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The partial plate recovered from the vehicle is 6AQ.

Officer Albie Esparza, a SFPD spokesman, says that while only one person called 911, surveillance footage indicates multiple people on the scene. He'd love to hear from you.

Cops are also searching for the perpetrator of a second recent hit-and-run: A 54-year-old man was killed at 19th and Folsom early Saturday morning; there is no description of that vehicle. Obviously, your calls are welcome there, too.

The police can be contacted at the Hit and Run Detail -- that's (415) 553-1215 -- the anonymous tip line -- (415) 575-4444 -- or you can text-a-tip at 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.'"
