Another Pedestrian Hit in San Francisco
|Incidentally, today is Walk to Work Day|
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.
