A woman in her 50s suffered “life threatening injuries” this afternoon when she was struck by an SUV being driven by a 92-year-old man in San Francisco’s Richmond District. Transit advocate Sue Vaughan, who lives in the Richmond, tipped us off to the crash on Park Presidio and Anza Street, and sent us the above photo of the vehicle.

Officer Eric Chiang, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Police Department, said it appeared the victim, who was rushed to a hospital, was in the crosswalk when she was hit around 2:25 p.m. He said the unidentified driver stopped and was cooperating with investigators but he has not been cited.

“We can’t confirm who was at fault,” said Chiang.  There were apparently several witnesses and they were still being interviewed.

We’ll post more details as we get them.
