May 12, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police are investigating the possible involvement of city transit bus in death of a pedestrian.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a man was struck by a vehicle around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and later died at a hospital.

The victim’s name has not been released.

Police say a Golden Gate Transit bus was stopped at the scene.

Police Supervisor Matt Haney says changes are needed at the “incredibly dangerous intersection” in the city’s Tenderloin district where the accident occurred.

Haney says the intersection has fast-moving traffic, rapid turns and a large number of pedestrians.

The Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Safe streets program Vision Zero SF says this is the city’s eighth pedestrian death this year.
