An accident involving a pedestrian struck by a vehicle at Van Ness and Market streets closed the busy intersection during evening hours, according to police.
The person hit was transported to a hospital by ambulance with nonlife threatening injuries.
The accident was reported around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, San Francisco Police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.
The person was hit by a sedan heading south on Van Ness. The intersection is closed to traffic at Van Ness and Fell Street and for traffic heading east at Market and 12th streets.
Andraychak said the person was “literally crossing through the middle of the intersection” and not in a crosswalk.
