65-Year-Old Man Fatally Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver at 9th Street

 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (September 18, 2018) – On Tuesday night, a 65-year-old was killed in a hit-and-run collision on Howard Street in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood. The deceased victim’s identity and place of residence were not immediately released, pending notification of next of kin.
 
The incident happened at around 11:30 PM at the intersection of 9th and Howard Street. Events leading up to the collision are unclear at this time.
 
After the driver struck the pedestrian, he fled from the scene, leaving the injured man in the road. The 40-year-old hit-and-run driver was later located by police and arrested.
 
This is the second deadly crash that has happened on the western end of Howard Street in the past week. Howard Street, between 4th and 9th Streets, has been considered as a high-injury corridor under the city’s Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024. Sections of the roadway are currently set to be made over under the Folsom-Howard Improvement Project, which aims to promote pedestrian and cyclist safety.
 
No additional information has been disclosed to the public, as officials continue to investigate.
