Separate Crashes Leave Two Pedestrians in Critical Condition

The crashes occurred one hour apart in the Inner Sunset and the Excelsior, respectively.

Two separate crashes sent two pedestrians to the hospital with life-threatening injuries Tuesday, police say Wednesday.

A driver on Persia Avenue and Moscow Street — near John McLaren Park in the Excelsior — reportedly heard a sound at 3:13 p.m. Tuesday before he got out of the truck and found someone underneath. He backed the truck off the 61-year-old woman before officials sent her to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Less than one hour later, another crash occurred on Fifth Avenue and Kirkham Street, near UCSF Medical Center in the Inner Sunset. A 56-year-old woman was sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Both women are still in the hospital with life-threatening injuries as of Wednesday afternoon, police say.

A 69-year-old man was killed in a crash with a parked car on Saturday, becoming the first cyclist killed in San Francisco in 2018.
