Incidentally, today is Walk to Work Day
A 41-year-old woman remains in critical condition this morning after she was hit by a car as she stepped into the street in the city's Mission District last night.

According to police, the woman was on the 5000 block of Mission Street when the car, turning left onto Mission, hit her. She was reportedly stepped out between two parked cars outside of the crosswalk when she was hit, police said.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

Police had no further details about the incident, which marks the third pedestrian hit by a car or a bike in the last two weeks. On March 29, 71-year-old Sutchi Hui was walking through the Castro neighborhood when a cyclist allegedly blew a red light and hit him. He died in the hospital on Tuesday.

Just 12 hours before that, a 60-year-old woman was struck, possibly by a Muni bus, in a hit-and-run accident downtown. Police are still investigating that incident.

So if you are participating in National Walk to Work Day today, please watch out for cars and bikes.

Erin, please do your research! You said that this is the third pedestrian to be hit and killed in the past two weeks which is incorrect. You did not include or mention the death of Tom Ferguson who was struck and killed March 25th. He was a friend and I am saddened that his death was not mentioned. Here is a link.

Please put a little more time to research your facts next time.. Thank you
