Zachary Watson sustained life-threatening injuries following a major hit-and-run collision in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood on July 28, 2014.
Anthony Wisner, 26, was arrested and charged with ten felony counts in connection with the crash, including six counts of hit-and-run, one count of driving a stolen vehicle, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving, altering/forging license plates, and pedestrian right-of-way violation. According to San Francisco Police, Wisner was driving a stolen minivan when the police tried to pull him over. Instead, he ran a red light and collided with a taxi at Jones and Post Streets. The taxi spun out of control and hit Zachary Watson as he was either locking up or walking with his bicycle. Wisner then tried to leave the scene on a Muni bus, where he was apprehended.
