A 42-year-old man is clinging to life after he was injured in a hit-and-run collision in the Tenderloin early this morning. 

According to police, the man was at Eddy and Larkin streets just before 1 a.m. when he was seen "exchanging words" with a driver in an older model white four-door Nissan. The driver then struck the pedestrian and fled the scene, says Officer Gordon Shyy. 
The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury. 

The incident was initially reported as an assault with a deadly weapon, but police are now investigating it as a felony hit and run, Shyy says.  

It was the second pedestrian hit by a car this weekend. On Saturday at about 9:30 p.m., 21-year-old Arman Lester, was killed while riding his skateboard when a driver hit him at Third and Cargo streets. It was initially being investigated as a hit-and-run since the driver did not immediately pull over. However, the driver later told police he had taken a right on Cargo Street and pulled over while waiting for police to arrive.

  • 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.'"
