SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO -- Police are searching for a woman they say hit a man riding his bike in South San Francisco, then drove away without stopping for the injured rider.

The victim was reportedly riding his bicycle in the 600 block of Grand Avenue when he tried to cross the street at the intersection of Grand and Magnolia Avenue, authorities said. As he made his way across the intersection, he was hit by a woman driving a beige Buick from the late 1990s or early 2000s, who proceeded to drive away.

The woman was last seen driving north on Magnolia toward Miller Avenue, authorities said. The man was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries and is expected to survive.
