An 18-year-old woman suffered head injuries when a van struck her as she was walking in a marked crosswalk in San Francisco’s Richmond District on Thursday afternoon, according to police.
Shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday, the pedestrian entered a marked crosswalk on Fulton Street, at the intersection with 32nd Avenue near Golden Gate Park, and was struck by a white van traveling west on Fulton Street.
Traffic traveling on Fulton Street through that intersection has neither a traffic light nor a stop sign, but must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk.
The woman was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with head injuries that are not considered life-threatening, police said.
The driver, identified as a 54-year-old man, failed to yield to the pedestrian but has not been arrested, according to police.
