Car Without License Plate Strikes Cyclist on the Embarcadero

A man suffered a shoulder injury as a result of being struck by a car near The Embarcadero in San Francisco’s South Beach neighborhood on Monday evening, police said.

The 38-year-old cyclist was riding south on The Embarcadero approaching Mission Street around 5:30 p.m. when a white Toyota Camry without license plates struck him, according to police.

The motorist, also traveling south on The Embarcadero, made a right turn onto Mission Street, striking the cyclist.

Police said the cyclist suffered a shoulder injury and was transported to a hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

San Francisco police have not said whether the motorist cooperated with the investigation, whether the motorist was cited, or why the vehicle didn’t have license plates.

    Most cars without license plates are either Uber and Lyft drivers not wishing to be photographed and reported to their insurance carriers for violating the terms of their personal car insurance. 1 in 20 Uber vehicles have missing plates. The taxi unions have been photographing these cars for years for their database.
