SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A pedicab driver was critically hurt by a hit-and-run driver and his four passengers, a family with two children, suffered non-life-threatening injuries Wednesday along San Francisco’s waterfront, authorities said.

Police are searching for a light colored sedan that was seen heading toward the Bay Bridge, said Officer Grace Gatpandan. The pedicab was left dented with one of its rear wheels crushed.

The crash happened along the embarcadero, a long, wide stretch of walkway that links restaurants and tourist attractions and is typically crowded with joggers, cyclists, walkers and tourists.

San Francisco General Hospital was treating four patients, including two children, spokesman Brent Andrew said. He said a man was in critical condition and a woman was in serious condition. He couldn’t disclose the conditions of the children, who police said are 5 and 8.
