A female pedestrian is in stable condition today after being struck by the driver of a vehicle parking in San Francisco’s Castro District on Wednesday afternoon, a police spokesman said.
The woman was hit at about 3:40 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of 16th and Pond streets, about a block from Market Street and two blocks from Castro Street, San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy said.
The driver of the vehicle, described as a man in his 60s, was reportedly backing into a parking spot when he hit the pedestrian, Shyy said.
The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with trauma to her head that was initially considered life-threatening, according to police.
However, Shyy said the woman is now in stable condition and recovering from her injuries.
He said the driver remained at the scene following the collision and has not been cited by police.
