SAN FRANCISCO—The San Francisco Police Department is asking for the public’s help to locate the suspect involved in a hit-and-run that occurred on September 20.

The SFPD reported at approximately 2:40 p.m., a car traveling westbound on Hayes at Gough Streets, drove through the intersection on a red light and struck a juvenile male who was riding an electric scooter. The suspect’s vehicle fled the scene westbound on Hayes without helping the victim who remained at the scene on the pavement.

Officers arrived and rendered aid to the victim, and summoned medics to the scene who transported the juvenile to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

TCIU investigators are seeking to identify and locate the driver who is described as a Black male, in his 20s, slim build, and was last seen wearing a light gray hoodie.
