San Francisco, California – A hit-and-run driver hit a San Francisco bartender while she was riding her bicycle home approximately three weeks ago, inflicting her with life-threatening injuries.
According to the San Francisco police, Alexandra “Alex” Tamez was struck by a car on February 10th at 12:35 a.m. on Third Street near Fairfax Avenue in the Bayview.
The hit-and-run driver fled the scene. The victim suffered serious brain injuries, a fractured skull, jaw, and ribs as a result of the accident.
Tamez was admitted for treatment in the intensive care unit at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and had just recently been brought out of a medically-induced coma. However, Tamez’s close ones say she still has a long way to recover.
The witness who had come to Tamez’s assistance provided a description of the vehicle to authorities.
A photo of the hit-and-run vehicle was published by the San Francisco police. The vehicle is a black Nissan Altima with a model year between 2013 and 2016, and authorities say the vehicle sustained damage to the front bumper on the passenger side.
Anyone with information regarding the hit-and-run vehicle is urged to call 911.
A GoFundMe page was created to help cover Tamez’s medical bills.
