An unidentified person is clinging to life this morning after being hit by a driver in a white van who then left the crime scene in the city's Richmond District.

According to Officer Gordon Shyy, the motorist was driving at California Street and Eighth Avenue at about 3:15 a.m. when she hit a pedestrian walking in the area.

The driver sped off, leaving the victim on the ground.

When police arrived, they found the victim who was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening head injury. Police also found the suspect, who was only identified as a 59-year-old woman, with another occupant in the white van.

The suspect was taken to Richmond Station where charges are pending, Shyy said.
