The victim, a 38-year-old man whose name has not been released, was struck by a vehicle on Van Ness Avenue near Grove Street. According to witnesses, the man was arguing with someone just before running into traffic. He made it across six of the street’s seven lanes before a Honda sedan struck him. The driver of the Honda stopped at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be involved.

Unfortunately, the man died at the scene. The investigating officer states that the driver was not at fault.

San Francisco pedestrian accidents have been on the rise since the end of 2013. Two pedestrians, Sofia Liu, 6, and Zhen Guang Ng, 86, were killed on New Year’s Eve, and four other pedestrians have been injured by cars in the city since then.

San Francisco police are seeking additional information about this collision. Anyone with details is urged to call 415-575-4444.
