A hit-and-run last Wednesday next to Alamo Square Park shocked the neighborhood and gravely injured an 88-year-old woman. Now, an arrest has been made.
The SFPD had immediately begun canvassing the area for surveillance footage after the incident at Fulton and Pierce streets on July 21, knowing they were looking for a white sedan. And as Bay City News reports, police made an arrest last last week, at a home in the Outer Sunset.
Police arrested 63-year-old Binh Tran of San Francisco on the 1700 block of 43rd Avenue on suspicion of hit-and-run. Charges against him are not yet known or have not yet been filed.
Tran's car was also seized for further investigation.
The victim, who was believed dead from her injuries late last week by posters on Nextdoor, remains hospitalized and alive and is expected to survive, according to the SFPD.
The intersection where the collision took place has two crosswalks across Fulton leading from Alamo Square Park. Witnesses said the suspect vehicle struck the woman and fled the scene around 6 p.m. last Wednesday.
