The accident was reported at 2:14 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Divisadero and Sutter streets.

The 65-year-old man was walking in the crosswalk, headed west on Sutter Street, when he was struck by a car that was turning south onto Divisadero Street from westbound Sutter Street, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The pedestrian was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and is expected to survive, Esparza said.

The driver of the car stopped at the scene and cooperated with officers. The cause of the collision is under investigation, but both the pedestrian and driver had a green light, according to Esparza.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
