A 26-year-old man has died from injuries he received in a hit-and-run collision over the weekend.

The victim has been identified as Johny Castillo-Alonzo of Daly City. According to Officer Gordon Shyy, the victim was driving along Cesar Chavez at Folsom Street at about 2:20 a.m. on Saturday when another driver on Folsom blew a red light and broadsided Castillo-Alonzo.

A second vehicle was hit before the driver as well as multiple passengers hopped out of the suspect car and fled on foot.

Castillo-Alonzo was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He died the following day, according to police. The driver in the second vehicle was treated for minor injuries.

Shyy said that one occupant from the suspect vehicle remained at the scene and is being interviewed by investigators who hope to find the driver at large.

Anyone with information about this hit-and-run collision is asked to call SFPD at 575-4444 ASAP.

  • 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.'"
