The collision was reported at about 12:40 p.m. near California and Drumm streets.

The pedestrian, a woman around 50 years old, ran across California Street behind a San Francisco Municipal Railway cable car and was struck by an eastbound vehicle whose driver did not see her, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The woman was taken to a hospital with complaints of pain to her head and wrist, Shyy said.

The driver remained at the scene, cooperated with investigators and was not cited, Shyy said.
