San Francisco police are seeking the driver of a black sedan who fled after crashing into a pole and injuring three passengers early Monday morning, a police spokesman said today.

The crash was reported at 2:32 a.m. Monday near Mission Street and Geneva Avenue.

The driver walked away from the crash, which caused life-threatening wounds to a 36-year-old woman in the car and also injured two other passengers in their 20s, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The Police Department's hit-and-run unit is investigating the crash, Shyy said.

The vehicle has been impounded and the registered owner has been identified, but police are conducting interviews to determine who was driving the car, Shyy said.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
