An elderly pedestrian was killed Tuesday after she was struck by the driver of a vehicle near the intersection of Mission Street and Geneva Avenue.
San Francisco police officers responded to the scene around 12:53 p.m., where they found the 79-year-old woman suffering from life-threatening injuries. They immediately rendered aid and summoned medics who transported her to the hospital.
The San Francisco Police Department confirmed on March 3 that the victim had succumbed to her injuries.
Preliminary findings from the investigation suggest the vehicle’s driver hit the victim while she was crossing the street, according to SFPD spokesperson Adam Lobsinger.
The driver stayed on the scene to cooperate with the investigation, Lobsinger said, and impairment of the driver has not yet been determined.
SFPD’s Traffic Company and Traffic Collision Investigation Unit is overseeing the investigation, and anyone with information is asked to call the police at (415) 575-4444 or send a text message to TIP411.
