Mason and Turk
Between Sunday night and this morning, cars have crashed into four pedestrians in San Francisco in three separate incidents. One man has died as a result of injuries.
In the first incident, a light-colored BMW struck a man and a woman at Mason and Turk around 6:30 pm. Both are being treated at SF General Hospital and are expected to survive. The driver remains at large.
In the second case, a man was struck at Geary and 10th Avenue around 6 this morning. The victim is being treated for critical injuries, and the driver is cooperating.
In the final instance, a pedestrian was killed at Sloat and 43rd Avenue. Details on that case remain unknown.
This year's San Francisco ballot features two measures about the role of cars in the city's transportation infrastructure. The mayor is supporting Proposition A, a $500 million bond that is part of a larger strategy to decrease the amount of cars used in the city. Meanwhile, Proposition L, supported by a large donation from Sean Parker, is a policy statement in favor of motorists. After a similar rash of accidents—including the killing of bicyclist Amelie Le Moullac—last year, the city adopted Vision Zero, which seeks to eliminate traffic fatalities entirely by 2024.
