Car Strikes Boy, Babysitter In San Francisco’s Richmond Dist.

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A 5-year-old boy and his babysitter are recovering at a hospital after being struck by a vehicle while walking in San Francisco’s Richmond District Monday evening.

The woman and boy were crossing the street in a crosswalk at 37th Avenue and Fulton Street when, around 5:15 p.m., they were hit by a vehicle, San Francisco police Officer Gordon Shyy said.

The boy suffered a contusion to his head, and the baby sitter suffered a leg injury, according to Shyy. Both were transported to San Francisco General Hospital and are expected to survive.

The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene, and was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, Shyy said.
