A San Francisco cable car operator suffered a traumatic brain
injury when he was struck by an allegedly intoxicated motorcyclist in San
Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood Thursday night, according to police.
The 50-year-old operator was getting off the cable car at the
corner of Taylor and Francisco streets 10:27 p.m. when the motorcyclist hit
him from behind, police said.
The man suffered a fractured skull and a brain injury. He was
taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, where
he remained this morning. It is still unclear if he will survive, police
spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan said.
The motorcyclist, identified as 22-year-old William Makepeace of
San Francisco, was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of felony
driving under the influence, Gatpandan said.
