A six-year-old child and an elderly woman were injured Wednesday morning after the driver of a vehicle struck them as they crossed an Outer Sunset street.
According to a San Francisco Police Department spokesperson, the collision was reported at 7:43 this morning, at the intersection of 43rd Avenue and Rivera Street.
The child and the child's grandmother were both struck in the incident, and were transported to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, a police spokesperson said.
The child had suffered "road rash," and the grandma was taken to the hospital as a precaution, police say. The driver stopped and was cooperative with police, an SFPD spokesperson says.
As someone who regularly walks and drives through that intersection, I can confirm that there are stop signs only for vehicles traveling on 43rd Avenue, and that parked cars on Rivera can make for visibility challenges for both pedestrians and drivers. However, police spokespeople didn't have any details on the circumstances of the collision at publication time, including where the pedestrians were crossing, the direction the vehicle was traveling in, or who they believe to be at fault.
