Hit and Run at 18th & Valencia

Were you or anyone you know around 18th/Valencia on July 1 before noon?

Cyclist and SFBC Member Andrew Bennett and his 4-year-old son were hit by a gray car or SUV with a partial license plate of 'KAY' and a heart-shaped symbol. After striking the cyclist, the driver (described as as a female, late 20s, with dark hair) fled the scene. Mr. Bennett suffered serious injuries, including a fractured spine, but his son was thankfully uninjured. The SF Police Department (SFPD) is asking for your help to track down this dangerous driver.
