SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities in San Francisco say three pedestrians were injured, one critically, after they were struck by a chain-link fence toppled by wind-driven construction debris.

A man and a woman were hit Sunday while walking near the fence at a construction site in the city’s Mission neighborhood.

Officials say paramedics took the man to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Firefighters say the woman had a minor injury.

Winds were gusting up to 30 mph throughout San Francisco on Sunday when a gust of wind pushed a large pile of debris into the fence, which blew over and into the pedestrians.
