An electric scooter rider was hospitalized early Sunday for life-threatening injuries after a car struck him at the Duboce Avenue-Guerrero Street intersection and then fled the scene, San Francisco police told The Standard.

The collision at 2:55 a.m. Sunday marked the second hit-and-run SFPD responded to in a five-hour span over the weekend. A pedestrian was struck by a driver who sped away around 9:30 p.m. the night before at Mission and Second streets.

While the victim in the earlier incident was hospitalized for less serious injuries, the scooter rider was in critical condition by the end of Sunday, authorities said.

The rider was identified as Jesus Zamudio, a baker at Bob's Donuts. Rebekah Ahn, whose family owns the San Francisco business, told The Standard on Monday that Zamudio was on his way to work at the 601 Baker St. shop when he was struck.

"He just didn't show up, and that's not like him at all," Ahn said. "When he was hit he didn't have any ID on him, but he was wearing a Bob's T-shirt and a Bob’s hat, so SFPD called our shop."

Ahn said Zamudio had emergency surgery on Sunday and still had not woken up as of Monday afternoon. According to a GoFundMe set up by Ahn, he has a wife and two kids, ages 3 and 5, who live in Mexico, and is his family's primary provider. Ahn said he has worked at Bob's for at least two years and lives in San Francisco.

Ahn said Zamudio is one of the business's main bakers and has worked at all three locations, including the newest shop in Mill Valley.

"It’s terrible," she said. "It’s just awful that like I mean someone just hit someone and ... left him there. Now, he’s in critical condition. He has a family and people care about him."
