A bicyclist was injured in an apparent collision involving an automobile at Market and Ellis Streets this morning. Limited details were available about the crash, but Streetsblog contributor Pam MacLean reports that it took place just before 7:40 a.m. today:

On my ride in today, I saw a cyclist down on the sidewalk at Market &
Ellis, on the westbound side of Market. … He was placed on a board by fire dept. ready for transport by ambulance (which had just arrived). Bike was beside him. Unclear what happened, or if he was indeed headed west.

MacLean reports that the cyclist appeared to be conscious and moving.

Lt. Ken Smith of the San Francisco Fire Department confirmed that both the fire department and the police department responded to the crash, which he confirmed involved a vehicle. Lt. Doug Groshong of the SFPD hit-and-run unit was not aware of the crash, and said the driver likely remained on the scene since his unit hadn’t been notified about it. An SFPD public affairs officer was also not aware of the crash.
