Driver Strikes Boy On Ocean Avenue, Is Arrested

One person has been arrested after a boy was struck by a vehicle at Ocean Avenue and Junipero Serra Boulevard this evening, according to San Francisco police.

Police were called to the intersection at 6:05 p.m. after a vehicle traveling from westbound Ocean Avenue to southbound Junipero Serra struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk, according to Sgt. Eric O’Neal.

The victim, a male juvenile, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were not considered life threatening, O’Neal said.

The driver, who remained at the scene, was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian and driving without proof of insurance, O’Neal said.

The collision remains under investigation.

    That is a dangerous intersection. The walk signal does not last long enough to cross the street safely – I’m an able adult and I have to run to cross all the lanes to make it across in time. How are children and seniors supposed to manage? I’ve told the MTA and they lengthened it for a couple of weeks but now it’s back to the short time again. The MTA and the mayor talk about pedestrian safety, but the MTA’s policy is to push the cars through and pedestrians watch your step! The traffic engineers in this city obviously never leave their vehicles and have never set foot in a crosswalk. Very sad for this child.

    that implies a left turn with the sun perhaps in the eyes of the driver. not sure if that is regulated by left turn light or a regular green light. It is a massive intersection that includes MUNI streetcars and hurried pedestrians.
