Man Seriously Injured After Being Hit by Car in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO — Police are on scene of a vehicle vs. pedestrian accident.

It happened around 7:40 Wednesday morning at the Intersection of 20th and Wawona street.

Officers say a man in his 20’s was hit by a car and suffered life-threatening injuries.

He was taken to a local hospital.

The driver of the car remained at the scene and is cooperating with police.

The pedestrian accident comes on the same day that San Francisco police are teaming up with the California Highway Patrol to conduct an increased enforcement operation to crack down on traffic violators.

The operation kicked off for this morning’s commute with a focus on Van Ness Avenue between Market and Geary streets.

For the evening commute, again more officers will be monitoring traffic on that stretch between 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

From 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., traffic enforcement will be increased on Folsom and Essex streets near Rincon Hill.

So far this year, there have been four pedestrian traffic fatalities on Van Ness Avenue of the seven such deaths throughout the city.
