BikeLane.jpgA bicyclist was injured in a hit-and-run in San Francisco’s North of Panhandle neighborhood early Sunday morning, police said today.

The collision was reported at 1:54 a.m. Sunday in the 200 block of Masonic Avenue, which is near Turk.

A 23-year-old woman was on her bicycle riding north on Masonic when a truck traveling the same direction and weaving between lanes struck her, according to police.

The truck, a black pickup with a camper shell on the back, accelerated away, and the driver had not been found as of this morning, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The victim was taken to a hospital with head injuries that are not considered life-threatening, Esparza said.

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