Still no arrest in last night’s hit and run case involving a driver that apparently went on a rampage and hit four cyclists: two in the Mission on the 2700 and 2800 block of Harrison, and two in Potrero Hill (23rd and Pennsylvania and 17th and Missouri.)

The victims were all men ranging in age from their mid-twenties to forty. The attacker does not appear to have discriminated with regard to ethnicity: two of the victims were described as white, one as Asian, and one as Hispanic.

Two of the victims had scratches, bruises and a broken leg.  The third struck his head when he fell and was in and out of consciousness. Threy were taken to San Francisco General Hospital. The fourth refused medical treatment.

Scott Sewell, a Mission resident who lives nearby and saw one of the hit and runs occur, said last night that the driver drove directly at the cyclist. The car proceeded as if it were “on a rope. Straight for that guy. Didn’t touch the brakes. Nothing.”

Sewell said he saw the two male cyclists who were injured waiting for paramedics.

The driver is described as a white male driving a blue car – a Nissan Rogue, according to an article published by SFGate. Sewell described it as a two-door blue coupe. “It had something like a 50 gallon drum on the back,“ he said.

SFPD said a car has been recovered near Potrero Hill but without the driver.

KTVU reported that the same car hit bicyclists at two additional locations in Potrero Hill. And according to reports extracted from it had no history of car insurance.

Mission Loc@l will continue to update this story as more information is released.
