A man was struck and killed by a truck on Market Street on Monday afternoon.
The collision was reported about 2:30 p.m. at Market and Beale streets, police spokesman Officer Carlos Manfredi said. The truck driver reportedly stopped and cooperated with investigators.
A witness at the scene who declined to give his name said that as he was waiting to cross the street, he saw the truck hit the victim as the victim crossed Beale Street in a crosswalk. He said paramedics administered CPR, but to no avail.
By 4 p.m., the victim’s body was still on Beale Street near the crosswalk, covered by a yellow tarp. A gray baseball cap and a tan sneaker had been placed on the edge of the tarp, and a matching sneaker was resting in the middle of Beale Street about 20 feet away.
On Friday, the Police Department told The San Francisco Examiner that 17 pedestrians had been killed by vehicles in The City this year, making Monday’s incident the 18th death.
