Public Works Dept. accident yields $1.75M payout

The City has reached a $1.75 million settlement agreement with the surviving family members of a 66-year-old woman who was struck and killed in a crosswalk by a Department of Public Works employee driving a pickup truck.

On April 11, 2008, Florencia Tiongco was crossing Bayshore Boulevard around 8:15 a.m. on a green light. A Department of Public Works employee was driving eastbound on Bacon Street in a city-owned Ford F-250. The driver, who also had a green signal, turned left and fatally struck Tiongco, the lawsuit said.

The city worker failed to yield to the right of way of a pedestrian in a crosswalk and was driving at an excessive speed, the lawsuit said.

The settlement agreement will be introduced Tuesday to the Board of Supervisors for its approval. — Joshua Sabatini
