Be careful out there
A 50-year-old woman is suffering major brain and head injuries after a driver hit her in the city's Anza Vista neighborhood, then drove off, leaving the victim behind.

Officer Gordon Shyy says the hit-and-run occurred at about 6:05 p.m. on Friday evening at the corner of Turk and Lyon streets. The driver -- who was in a two-door silver car -- hit the pedestrian as she was crossing the street.

The driver did not stop, and has yet to be located, according to police.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. As of today, police were not able to give an update on the woman's condition.

It's the second hit-and-run accident in the last week. On Dec. 21, 56-year-old Yuee Yao was killed when a driver slammed into her and two other pedestrians, knocking the three onto a hillside in Twin Peaks. A third victim was injured as she jumped out of the way of the vehicle. Police arrested 23-year-old Gina Eunice on suspicion of hit and run.

Eunice appeared in court last week where she pleaded not guilty to the felony charges.

Anyone who witnessed Friday's incident or has any information is asked to contact the SFPD hit-and-run unit 553-1641 or the anonymous tip line at 575-4444.
