Pick-up truck strikes, kills 77-year-old pedestrian in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Police are investigating after a 77-year-old woman was hit by a truck and killed Saturday night in San Francisco, according to the San Francisco Police Department.

Around 11:30 p.m., officers responded to Lake Merced Blvd. and Font St. regarding a collision.

Officers found that a 77-year-old pedestrian was crossing the street at Lake Merced Blvd. near Font St. when she was struck by a Dodge pick-up truck.

The 56-year-old Milbrae resident who was driving the truck remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, police said.
