Two grandparents with young children were walking in the crosswalk at Embarcadero at 7:30 a.m. at Broadway Street when a Recology garbage truck stuck the woman and a seven- year-old old girl.

“The garbage truck was turning southbound on the Embarcadero from Broadway, apparently didn’t see the pedestrians,” Sgt. Marco Brockton, from SFPD, said.

A witness told KCBS that it appeared the garbage truck’s driver appeared to be at fault.

Police had the eastbound Broadway Street lane closed between Davis Street and the Embarcadero.
