BikeLane.jpgSFPD continues to search for witnesses in a vehicular hit-and-run that injured a cyclist this weekend, but so far, an SFPD spokesperson says, no one has stepped forward with any information on the collision.

At about 12:20 a.m. Saturday, the victim, a 24-year-old man, was riding west on 25th Street when a gray sedan traveling east on 25th turned north onto Bartlett Street and reportedly struck him. The sedan did not stop, and continued down Bartlett.

As of Saturday, the bicyclist was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. SFPD spokesperson Officer Eric Chiang was unable to update us with his condition as of this morning, nor was he able to confirm (as some have asked) if the cyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

“I’m sorry to say that so far, no one’s called or come in” with any information on the case, Chiang told the Appeal. He urged anyone who might have seen the incident to contact police anonymously by calling (415) 575-4444 or by texting a tip to TIP411.
