Two pedestrians seriously injured in collisions

Two pedestrians suffered life-threatening injuries in separate collisions in San Francisco Thursday, according to police.

A female pedestrian was struck by a 41-year-old male driver just after 7:30 a.m. in the area of Ocean and Harold avenues, police said Friday.

Police did not offer any details of the collision. The woman was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Just after 6 p.m. Thursday, an 18-year-old man was struck by a driver at 43rd Avenue and Fulton Street.

He was also taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police said the driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with investigators.

No arrest was reported in either incident as of Friday morning.

Editor’s Note: Shortly after 3 p.m. Friday, San Francisco police put out an updated alert indicating that the person injured in the collision at 43rd and Fulton was in fact a pedestrian, not a bicyclist as was previously reported. The story has been updated to reflect the corrected information.Bay Area NewsCrimesan francisco newsTransittransport-featured
