Pedestrian killed in accident at 19th, Sloat

A pedestrian was killed after two cars crashed into each other this afternoon at 19th Avenue and Sloat Boulevard in San Francisco, coroner's officials have confirmed.

The pedestrian, a woman in her early 20s, was struck after the collision propelled one of the cars onto the sidewalk where she was standing, fire officials said.

The woman's name will not be released until her family is notified, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner.

The accident occurred around 2 p.m., according to San Francisco Fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge. The woman was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries and later died. The others were transported with minor injuries, Talmadge said.

The drivers of the two vehicles involved in the collision were transported to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries.

Streets in the area were closed for over two hours today because of the accident. The roads have since been cleared.

The accident remains under investigation, officials said.
