Nothing will sober you up like getting hit by a car.

A 30-year-old woman is recovering this week from a head injury (and probably a really bad hang over) after she reportedly got hammered and then got hit by a car.

According to Officer Albie Esparza, the very intoxicated woman was walking along Hayes Street at about 12:26 a.m. on Friday when she fell into the street and passed out.

A driver cruising along Hayes did not see the unresponsive woman and hit her with her car, Esparza says. The victim was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a head injury. She got lucky this time and is expected to survive, police say.

The driver remained at the scene, and was not cited or arrested.
