The San Francisco Police Department is seeking the driver of a white van today, after he or she struck and killed a pedestrian at 6 a.m. this morning.
KRON 4 reports that emergency responders were called to the intersection of Powell Street and Broadway (near the Jean Parker Elementary School) on reports of an adult male body in the road.
When they arrived, they found a deceased man in his 60s "about three yards away from the crosswalk," CBS 5 reports. Police say that at this point, it's unclear if the man was in the crosswalk when he was hit.
Police told reporters on the scene that the victim was an man who lived in the neighborhood, but at publication time he had yet to be publicly identified.
According to an SFPD spokesperson at the site of the collision, the victim was struck by the driver of a white van.
