A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run collision in San Francisco’s South of Market early Thursday morning, authorities said.
San Francisco police say officers responded within three minutes to a 4:54 a.m. call reporting the collision on Sixth Street between Bryant and Brannan streets. When officers arrived, they found a person suffering from life-threatening injuries.
A post to the Citizen platform showed police blocking off the intersection to traffic.
Despite measures from first responders summoned to the scene, the pedestrian was pronounced dead.
Their identity was not immediately available, pending next-of-kin notification by the city’s medical examiner’s office.
Investigators were processing the scene and gathering evidence of the incident, as the vehicle fled the scene. Police did not share any description of the vehicle.
The death is the city’s second pedestrian fatality of the year following a Jan. 31 collision where a minivan struck a 63-year-old man at Arguello Boulevard and Fulton Street.
