SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car in San Francisco Wednesday morning.

San Francisco police responded at 8:50 a.m. to the crash at Sutter and Divisadero Streets.

The victim was transported to a local hospital.

The driver stayed behind and was cooperating with police. The intersection was blocked off while police investigated the crash.

No further details were immediately available.

    Even a machine learned driverless car that has no heart would not blame the victim for the crash even if they were jay walking, wearing dark clothing, homeless, under the influence, walking too slowly in a cross walk, cycling, etc, etc. No it would instead try to ‘learn’ how to find a safer and more efficient way to brake! It is unfortunate that neither NHTSA nor GHSA seem to want to peruse that course of action.
