Pedestrian struck by suspect vehicle during SF police pursuit

A pedestrian was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries Tuesday night after being struck by a suspect vehicle during a San Francisco police pursuit.

Police were in the area of 8th and Market streets just after 10:30 p.m. when officers in a marked patrol car got behind a vehicle used in a suspected robbery.

The suspect vehicle immediately fled from officers and struck a pedestrian at 8th and Market streets, according to an SFPD press release.

The suspect vehicle, a blue four door BMW, traveled onto the Bay Bridge and was pursued to Oakland where it was lost near the Interstate 580 split.

The pedestrian was transported to San Francisco General Hospital.

More details will be posted as they become available.
