The hit-and-run crash was reported at about 2:35 a.m. in the 4500 block of 17th Street, San Francisco police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said.

A silver-colored car was traveling west on 17th Street when it apparently struck some scaffolding that had been set up for a paint job that was being done on a residential building, Dangerfield said.

Part of the scaffolding fell to the street below, but no one was injured, he said.

The motorist drove off afterward and has not been found.

The contractor working on the project was called out to the scene and has secured the scaffolding, Dangerfield said.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
