Woman in Tenderloin crosswalk suffers fractured skull in hit-and-run collision

A woman crossing the street in a crosswalk suffered a fractured skull in a hit-and-run collision in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood early this morning, police said.

The collision was reported at about 12:40 a.m. at the intersection of Turk and Taylor streets, about a block from Market Street, according to police.

Based on the preliminary police investigation, it appears the victim, identified as a woman in her 60s, was walking in a crosswalk when a white vehicle struck her from behind.

The suspect vehicle did not stay at the scene following the collision, police said.

The pedestrian was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with a fractured skull.

Police said her injuries are considered life-threatening.
