San Francisco Personal Injury Attorneys: Accident in the Inner Richmond

Mornings can be a tough time to be a pedestrian.  Many drivers on the road are making their way to work to begin their day, and many are either still half-asleep or just still waking up.  As such, their attention and reaction times are generally not what they would be if it were the afternoon or early evening.  Perhaps this is the case with an accident that happened Thursday in San Francisco’s Inner Richmond District.  This part of town is known for being quieter and “slower,” but is bisected by Geary Boulevard, a mighty artery of traffic that spans the entirety of the City.  On Geary and 10th Avenue, at about 8:00am, a 70 year old man was crossing the boulevard.  According to the San Francisco Chronicle it was not known whether or not he was crossing with the green light.  An SUV was making a turn at the signal, and according to witnesses was traveling at a clip of about 20 miles per hour.  Apparently the driver of the SUV did not see the pedestrian, but the pedestrian did see the car.  He waved his hands and cane in the air in an attempt to catch the driver’s attention and have them stop, but it was already too late.  The man was struck when the SUV crossed into the crosswalk.  Geary Boulevard was shut down in order to better help the victim, who was described as alert and conscious while he was being transported to San Francisco General Hospital.  The driver got out of his car and was cooperative with police.  As there are a lot of facts that remain to be seen it is unknown whether or not the driver was in violation of the law.
