A 62-year-old man is fighting for his life today after he was hit by a driver who callously fled the scene.

According to Sgt. Daryl Fong, the victim was walking across the street at the busy intersection of Columbus and Stockton on Saturday at about 11:30 p.m. when a white SUV headed north on Columbus hit the man. 

The driver sped off, leaving the injured victim on the street. However, police are hopeful that someone witnessed this accident in this bustling part of town on a Saturday night.

The victim was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury, and medical authorities say the man is still clinging to life today.

Meanwhile, San Francisco police are looking for the suspect vehicle -- a white SUV driven by either a black or Hispanic male in his 20s.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact SFPD at the Hit and Run Detail at 553-1215, or the anonymous tip line at 575-4444; You can also

  • 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.'"
