The pedestrian was running across the street when he was hit by a car that had a green light, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
He flew about 30 feet in the air before landing on the ground, and suffered a fractured skull and other injuries that are considered life-threatening, police said.
He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.
The driver of the car stopped and cooperated with police after the accident, Esparza said.
