As first reported on SFist, a pedestrian was injured in a hit-and-run collision in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood this afternoon, a police spokesman said.

The 35-year-old man was struck at about 2:05 p.m. at the intersection of Second and Bryant streets, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Witnesses said the vehicle that struck the man then accelerated away, possibly in the direction of the Bay Bridge, Esparza said.

The vehicle, a white sedan possibly from a Japanese manufacturer, is believed to have major front-end damage, and had black rims and tinted windows, according to Esparza.

The victim was taken to a hospital to be treated for his injuries, Esparza said. He did not know the man’s condition.
