Pedestrians Struck In Two Incidents Sunday: By Private Bus Driver On Mission Street, By Unlicensed Driver In Sunset

San Francisco police are investigating two separate collisions between drivers of vehicles and pedestrians that happened on Sunday, a police sergeant said.

In the Sunset District, officers responded to a report of a collision in the 3700 block of Ulloa Street near 39th Avenue around 9:45 p.m., Sgt. Eric O’Neal said.

A driver traveling east on Ulloa Street hit a pedestrian who was in the crosswalk, he said.

The pedestrian, a woman in her 60s, was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where she is in serious but stable condition, O’Neal said. The pedestrian may have been intoxicated at the time of the collision, according to O’Neal.

The driver, who stayed at the scene, was cited for driving without a license and driving without turning the vehicle’s headlamps on, he said.

In a second incident, at about 8:10 a.m. on Sunday, officers and paramedics responded to a report of a crash involving a man in his 60s who had been hit by the driver of a private bus at Seventh and Mission streets, O’Neal said.

The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were potentially life threatening, O’Neal said.

The bus driver remained at the scene and cooperated with police.

The crash remains under investigation.

    My sympathies to the victims and their loved ones. Regarding the article’s author Eve Batey however. What school of journalism did you attend? Did you get the tip from a Police Scanner, then make “a” call to Sgt. Eric O’Neil for verification? So before you submit (and how DO these articles make it to Google News?) you’ve reported more about the suspects than the victims. A woman in her ’60’s crossing in a Pedestrian Walk at 9:45pm Sunday NIGHT? There is “nothing” there that’s still open, unless she was returning from Walgreen’s or Public Transporation on Taraval. There’s hardly any traffic, so maybe she couldn’t be seen because of no car headlights? Was this driver under the influence, young, old, stupid, or careless? I used to live only blocks from that intersection. Was the woman a neighborhood resident, walking a pet, Caucasian, Asian, other? Was she alone, aided by neighbors, relatives? And the poor man in his ’60’s in the Mission District? Come on, it’s now Monday morning nearly 1:00pm. If you’re going to post these stories, then DO some follow-up research at least and post the update for people to follow! Safety (or the lack thereof) at those intersections affects everybody!
