Allegedly Drunk Driver Strikes Pedestrian On Mission Street

A driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI Friday night after he allegedly struck a pedestrian at a San Francisco bus stop, leaving her with life-threatening injuries, a police spokeswoman said.

Police believe the driver collided with a 35-year-old woman at a bus stop at Mission and 30th streets around 8:10 p.m., San Francisco police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

The woman was taken to a hospital where she is being treated for injuries that are believed to be life-threatening, the sergeant said.

“She will probably have quite a long recovery,” Newman said.

The sergeant said the driver, identified as 45-year-old James Bell of San Francisco, was arrested on suspicion of DUI causing injury and a hit-and-run.

Bell remained in custody as of this morning.

    I witnessed an accident on Friday January 17, 2014. I don’t know if this is the
    same one because the one I saw happened like at 10:00 pm. A dark-colored car
    impacted another car at the intersections of Mission and Santa Marina. Then the
    car went down non-stop on Mission towards 30th Street, I imagine that it struck
    against something or someone… In a matter of 5 minutes the cops and ambulance
    started to arrive at the scene of the accident.
