Three people were hospitalized Saturday morning with injuries suffered in a hit-and-run crash involving a motorcycle in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter.

At 7:15 p.m. Friday, a man was doing a wheelie on his 2014 Harley Davidson Road King motorcycle with a passenger, a 32-year-old woman, westbound in the 400 block of F Street when he lost control, the woman fell off and he struck two people at the corner of 4th Avenue and F Street, according to Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

The man ran from the crash and left the motorcycle at the scene, Heims said.

A 21-year-old man suffered a fractured ankle and cut knee and a 55-year-old woman suffered a fractured elbow, Heims said. Both were taken to a hospital, along with the woman passenger, who complained of pain.

A description of the suspect was not available.
