Pedestrian in Critical Condition After Being Hit by Cyclist
|Be careful out there|
Update (10:13 a.m.): Police say the cyclist who hit an elderly man in the Castro this morning might have run a red light.
Police are investigating separate accidents where two pedestrians were hit -- one by a cyclist and another who was possibly struck by a Muni bus in a hit-and-run.
Firefighters are on the scene at Castro and Market streets where a pedestrian was hit by a cyclist at about 8:05 a.m, said Officer Albie Esparza. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. No more details were available at this time.
The accident happened just 12 hours after a 60-year-old woman was struck, possibly by a Muni bus, in a hit-and-run accident.
At about 7:45 p.m. yesterday officers were called to the intersection of Howard and Beale streets, where they found the injured woman lying in the roadway. She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
A witness later told police that they saw a bus along the intersection, southbound on Beale, as the pedestrian stood on the median on Beale Street, south of Howard. The witness reported seeing the pedestrian lying in the road after the bus had passed, Esparza said.
