Driver hits three pedestrians, kills 1

SAN MATEO — A British Columbian woman was in San Mateo visiting friends this week when she was struck by a car at the intersection of East Third and South Ellsworth avenues.

Coroner’s investigators identified the crash victim as 35-year-old Man Cheung, of Burnaby, British Columbia. Cheung was crossing the street Wednesday evening with two male friends, an adult and a juvenile, with whom she was staying while visiting the Bay Area, according to San Mateo Police Lt. Tom Daughtry.

“The collision is under investigation. At this time we don’t know exactly what occurred,” Daughtry said.

Police responded to the scene at 7:48 p.m. and found Cheung trapped under a Toyota Scion two-door sedan. Paramedics attempted to resuscitate her but were unsuccessful. Her companions were treated for minor injuries at Stanford University Medical Center.

The driver was not arrested and neither alcohol nor drugs is believed to be a factor in the crash, according to Daughtry. Police say they believe the dark hour and rainy weather may have contributed to the cause.

Witnesses are asked to contact the San Mateo Police Department at 522-7740.
