25 Year Old Woman Hit by Car in SoMa, Seriously Injured

A woman was seriously injured when she was hit by a car while walking in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood this evening.

A dark gray Nissan Altima turning from northbound Seventh Street to Townsend Street hit the pedestrian at about 5:10 p.m., according to the Nissan’s driver.

The pedestrian was injured and taken away in an ambulance. The 25-year-old woman was hospitalized with serious injuries, fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said.

The Nissan’s driver stayed at the scene, just outside the Pinterest offices, and cooperated with police. The Nissan’s windshield was shattered.

    Just another day in the life of streets of San Francisco. This city is crazy. I see random unexpected U-turns by Uber and Lyft drivers everyday. I even saw an “O”-turn the other. I guy goes into a four-way intersection and goes all the way in a 360 and goes back the way he was coming from. SFMTA and SFPD Traffic are useless. This is a very dangerous city to be a pedestrian or a bicyclist.

    The city is almost 5 months into “vision zero” and people are still getting into traffic accents on the street. Why? Under “vision zero” pedestrians and cyclists will bear NO RESPONSIBILITY for their own safety and by extension, for their actions on the road.Why?

    Vision Zero, like the War on Drugs is nothing more than another tool to encourage heavy-handed, revenue-based enforcement on city residents.

    1. “Vision Zero” does not penalize distracted pedestrians who stare at their phones while crossing the street.
    2. “Vision Zero” does not penalize Kamikaze bicyclists who run red lights and blow through stop signs
    3. “Vision Zero” is nothing more than a tool to escalate the assault on driving and to encourage heavy-handed, revenue-based enforcement.

    The only way to ensure zero traffic fatalities to keep people locked up in their homes 24/7.
