Elderly Woman Struck By Car, Seriously Hurt In SF Richmond District

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5 / BCN) — An elderly woman suffered life-threatening injuries when she was struck by a vehicle in San Francisco’s Richmond District on Tuesday afternoon, police and fire officials said.

The woman was hit at 2:25 p.m. near the intersection of Park Presidio Boulevard and Anza Street, SFFD Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

She was taken to a hospital with injuries that were believed to be life-threatening, SFPD Officer Eric Chiang said.

A witness told police that the woman appeared to be walking in the
crosswalk across Park Presidio when she was struck by a car turning from Anza onto Park Presidio.

The driver of the car, a 92-year-old man, stopped at the scene and was cooperating with police, Chiang said.

    On the news story CBS5 aired last night they reported the person struck was in her 50’s, hardly ‘elderly.’ Now the driver is a completely different story. I have seen 92-year-olds who were capable of driving but far more of them should not be driving than should.
