Pedestrian Hit By Car, Severely Injured In SF Outer Mission District

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— A car hit and injured a pedestrian near San Francisco's Outer Mission neighborhood Wednesday morning, sending him to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The accident happened at San Jose Avenue and Liebig Street near I-280 and the border with Daly City, right across from a 7-Eleven store.

San Francisco Police Officer Brian Loohan said a pedestrian was crossing westbound on Liebig when he was struck by a Honda Civic traveling on San Jose Avenue. The officer said he did not know if the pedestrian was in the crosswalk.

"The landing point of the pedestrian was not in the crosswalk. However, we're going to have to run some numbers and do some reconstruction to figure out if the pedestrian was in the crosswalk," he said.

Police have not identified the pedestrian who was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. A pool of blood and a baseball cap remained at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Civic stopped after the collision and was cooperating in the investigation.
