Man, 21, seriously injured after being struck by driver near SFSU

A 21-year-old man was struck by a car and seriously injured near the Ingleside neighborhood early Sunday morning, according to transit advocates.

The pedestrian was walking at the intersection of 19th Avenue and Junipero Serra Boulevard at around 3:15 a.m. when a red Toyota Prius traveling southbound on 19th Avenue hit him, police said.

The man was taken to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to police.

Police said the driver remained at the scene.

A pedestrian advocacy group, Walk SF, on Sunday issued a statement indicating that the pedestrian had died.

However, police on Monday said the victim was still alive and in the hospital, although his injuries continue to be considered life-threatening.
