A 34-year-old woman was injured and taken to a hospital early Tuesday morning after a male driver struck her with a car while she was standing outside another parked vehicle in San Francisco, according to police.

The suspect, a juvenile, was taken into custody, and after further investigation, police believe he intentionally crashed into the other vehicle.

The incident occurred at about 2:15 a.m. on San Bruno Avenue, near Felton Street in the city's Portola neighborhood during a dispute, police said. The juvenile male was driving a maroon Honda Accord and hit the parked vehicle and the woman, who suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses say a nearby nightclub had just let out, and fights were happening just before the incident.

Witnesses also reported a Muni bus driver came to the aid of the victim by protecting her with his bus, blocking the suspect vehicle, and calling 911 as the victim lay in the street.

The suspect faces charges of aggravated assault, driving under the influence and being an unlicensed driver, police said.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information should call the SFPD 24-hour Tip Line at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
