Yesterday, we informed readers about the tragic hit-and-run accident in North Beach that left a 62-year-old man clinging to life. Police are offering up a little more information about the vehicle that was seen fleeing the scene, hoping people will help them find the person responsible.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak says police are looking for a late '90s full-size Chevy SUV (Suburban type). It's white with tinted windows. The license plate is believed to be registered in California, and the last two digits of the license plate are 24.

There may also be front-end damage to the car.

The victim was walking across the street at the busy intersection of

Columbus and Stockton on Saturday at about 11:30 p.m. when the driver, headed north on Columbus, hit the man, police said. The driver then sped off, leaving the victim bleeding on the street.

The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he is still suffering from a life-threatening head injury.  

Anyone with information on the Hit and Run or the location of suspect

vehicle is asked to call the SFPD Anonymous Tip Line at 575-4444, or text a tip to  TIP411 and include "SFPD" in the subject line.

  • 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.'"
