Taxi flees then returns after striking man

A man was sent to a hospital after a taxi struck him in San Francisco’s Marina District Friday night, a police spokesman said.

Around 10:10 p.m., officers responded to reports of a collision in which a taxi struck a pedestrian then fled the scene, police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The taxi returned to the scene a short time later, Shyy said.

The pedestrian, a man in his 20s, was transported to a hospital, he said. Shyy did not know the man’s condition. The collision remains under investigation.
