S.F. police seeking hit-and-run driver

San Francisco police continue to search for a hit-and-run driver who caused a three-car pileup in The City’s Bayview district Monday night that led to the death of a 70-year-old South San Francisco woman.

According to police, the incident is the second fatal crash involving vehicle passengers in San Francisco this year. The first occurred Feb. 13 at Division Street and San Bruno Avenue.

On Monday at 8:30 p.m., a male driver of a 2002 Pontiac Grand Am collided with a 2003 Nissan pickup at the intersection of Gilman Avenue and Jennings Street. The pickup, which was carrying three people, spun out of control and hit a parked Chevrolet Cavalier that was unoccupied, police said. The Pontiac driver also lost control and hit a Volkswagen Bug stopped in the intersection, police said.

According to witnesses, the man who apparently caused the collision at the intersection abandoned the Pontiac and fled the scene on foot.

Celsa-Lidia Moreno, 70, of South San Francisco was a passenger in the pickup truck and was pronounced dead on the scene, San Francisco police Sgt. Neville Gittens said. The driver was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with serious injuries, police said.

The woman driving the Volkswagen Bug was apparently not injured, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the San Francisco police hit- and-run detail at (415) 553-1641.
