Isaak Berenzon killed in San Francisco Pedestrian Accident

Isaak Berenzon, 78, of San Francisco, was fatally struck by a car in Parkside in a San Francisco pedestrian accident. He was walking east across Sunset Boulevard at Yorba Street in or near a crosswalk when a driver in a Toyota Corolla hit him. The force of the impact caused Berenzon to become lodged in the windshield. He died at the scene. The driver and two passengers were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

The intersection where Berenzon was killed is known to be dangerous for pedestrians, according to neighbors. Though the crosswalk features warning lights when a pedestrian hits a button to cross the street, it was not clear if they were flashing at the time of the collision. One neighbor told reporters that they often see drivers speeding down the street, and wished that the city put in a traffic signal.

The driver of the vehicle, later identified as Jenny Ching, 71, has been cited for vehicular manslaughter and failing to yield to a pedestrian.

Isaak Berenzon is the second pedestrian death of 2014.
