Facebook Post Helps Lead To Daly City Hit-And-Run Suspect

DALY CITY (CBS SF) — A citizen following up on a Facebook posting led police to the arrest of a suspect in a hit-and-run last week in Daly City.

Police said the man, a 30-year-old San Francisco resident, rear-ended a vehicle on Serramonte Boulevard at Gellert Boulevard in Daly City at 6:11 p.m. last Wednesday.

Police said the man was driving a white Nissan Frontier truck with a San Francisco Toyota license plate frame and no plates when he hit another vehicle, causing front-end damage to the Nissan. The man reportedly fled the scene after the collision.

Officers posted a picture of the man on Facebook, along with a photo of the truck he was driving. In an updated Facebook post today, police said a citizen called the Police Department on Friday identifying the man in the photo, leading to his arrest.

Police said the man, whose name is not yet being released, confessed to the incident.
