Police are asking for the public's help in finding the driver who struck a cyclist in the Ingleside neighborhood Sunday morning before speeding off.

According to police, the cyclist was hit shortly after midnight on Sunday as the victim was pedaling on Geneva and Ocean avenues. The driver left the scene after colliding with the bicyclist.

"The bicyclist fell on the street and then the car hit the cyclist and drove off," Officer Albie Esparza told SF Weekly.

Firefighters nearby witnessed the accident, and assisted the victim who was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with serious injuries, Esparza told us.

While police want help in finding the driver, they had no description of the vehicle nor details about the driver. However, if anyone did witness this accident and has information, please contact the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message 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.'"
