SAN FRANCISCO -- A bicyclist suffered life-threatening injuries when he fell off his bike and hit his head in San Francisco's Financial District on Sunday afternoon, police and fire officials said.
The accident was reported shortly before 4 p.m. near the intersection of Columbus Avenue and Montgomery Street, San Francisco fire spokeswoman Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.
The 40-year-old man was riding his bike against the one-way traffic on nearby Washington Street prior to the fall, police said.
