Holly Park
An unidentified woman died this afternoon after a city worker driving a Rec and Park maintenance truck ran over her in Bernal Heights.

Mindy Talmadge, spokeswoman for the San Francisco Fire Department, said the incident happened at about 2:20 p.m.; the woman was at the south end of Holly Park laying in the grass with her child and dog when the driver came off the pathway, hitting the woman.

The child and dog were not injured, Talmadge said.

The driver kept going, leaving the scene as people yelled at him to stop. Meanwhile, people in the park performed CPR on the woman until paramedics arrived.

She was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The cops did locate the driver, Talmadge said.

Park truck runs over mother with child, Fireman hits motorcyclist with fire truck, fire truck runs over girl after airplane crash. Who the fuck is the City hiring? Incompetent assholes?

What is wrong with SF City Park and Rec driving such a huge vehicle down the hills and paths of a small neighborhood park. This park is frequented by parents with small children and pets.

Unbelievable ! It is not acceptable for a park maintance truck to randomly drive through a small neighborhood park where parents walk with children and pets. There are only paths not roads for such a vehicle.

@David William Wagner Yes, lets bring politics into this and not mourn a mother because the rest of the world is also f'd up. OK, dude.
