San Francisco cops are at the scene of a deadly collision that killed a pedestrian and injured four others in the Parkside District.

Police had very little information at this time, but confirmed that the incident happened at Sunset Boulevard and Yorba Avenue just before 11 a.m.

A witness told CBS News that the pedestrian was in the crosswalk when he/she was hit and went through the front windshield of the car. The four others suffered minor injuries.

I almost get hit at least 5 times a day when using the cross walk. People need to pay the damn attention

I have noticed that no one looks both ways be for crossing. Between bikes and people crossing the street, all need to look not just cars

Damn, can';t anyone in the City drive anymore? All I ever hear about if another person hit by a car, usually killed. That other pedal is called the BRAKE. Use it! Better yet, get your stupid ass in a taxi or bus.

No excuse: the pedestrian was in the crosswalk -- not even a free-fire zone. But I'm sure the driver will be let off with community service and probation.

I know that intersection. You would have to be lunatic to cross Sunset there! Unfortunately, the streets of San Francisco were designed when cars went slower than 35 mph.

John Lilly: I'm sure this will spur the bicyclists on.

Can't blame bikes for this one. RIP anonymous pedestrian.

The cops were busy doing something so much more important -- wrestling with naked guys at 17th and Market. Now they'll have to slap the wrist of the killer, taking them away from their fun.

I have more close calls with bicycles than with cars. Somehow, many bicyclists don't see red lights or crosswalks... Or sidewalks.
