Woman fatally struck by vehicle

A female pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle Friday night at Van Ness Avenue and Bush Street in San Francisco, a police spokeswoman said.

The victim was hit at about 9:15 p.m. and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital where she was pronounced dead shortly after
arriving, police Sgt. Lyn Tomioka said.

The driver of the vehicle stopped after the crash and was interviewed by investigators. The driver was not arrested as of Friday night and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash, but the incident remains under investigation, Tomioka said.

Preliminary reports indicate the victim was in a crosswalk when she was struck.
