A careless bike rider speeding at Embarcadero and Mission Street in San Francisco this morning ran a red light and hit a pedestrian. The Chronicle reports: "The victim, who is in her 60s, was crossing the Embarcadero in a crosswalk with the green light at Mission Street when she was hit by the northbound bicyclist at about 8:30 a.m., said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman."
The injured woman (or "granny," as SF Weekly calls her) remains in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The cyclist, whose name has been withheld, cooperated with officers at the scene. An officer explained to BCN (via SF Appeal) that "the bicyclist would face the same potential legal repercussions as the driver of any car involved in a collision with a pedestrian," provided he is found guilty.
