Geary hit-and-run victim dies from injuries

A 73-year-old man who was struck Tuesday in a hit-and-run accident on Geary Boulevard died from his injuries, authorities said Thursday.

The man, whose name has been withheld by the Medical Examiner’s Office pending family notification, was hit by a car driven by Ywe E. Emerson at the intersection of Geary Boulevard and 20th Avenue. 

Authorities said that Emerson was taking a left turn from 20th Avenue, when he struck the pedestrian, who was walking in a crosswalk.

A witness followed Emerson’s vehicle and was able to provide police with the license plate number of the runaway driver.

Tuesday’s pedestrian fatality was the eighth this year in San Francisco, according to inspectors from the Police Department’s hit-and-run division.Bay Area NewsLocalTransittransportation
