Elderly woman dragged by minivan suffers brain injuries

A 65-year-old woman’s skull was fractured when she was dragged from the window of a minivan for a block Friday in the western part of the Bayview, police said.

The incident began with a car crash, when the suspect of a blue Mazda MPV backed into the victim’s car on the 200 block of Bayshore Boulevard around 11:43 a.m., police said.

Both the victim and suspects hopped out of their vehicles, but the suspect got back inside and tried to drive away, police said.

That’s when the elderly woman grabbed onto the minivan’s window and was pulled down the street. The suspect, a man around 40 to 50 years old, drove away.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital for head injuries considered life threatening, including a bleeding brain, police said.

No arrests have been made in the case.
