SAN FRANCISCO (KRON)–Two people were transported to a San Francisco hospital after being struck by wind-driven debris at a construction site.

According to the San Francisco Fire Department, the incident happened in the area of 23rd St & San Jose Avenue. 

An elderly man and one other person suffered cuts and concussions after strong winds sent a fence crashing down.

One resident, Sarah Sitts said, “the fence has been up for quite a while and it’s almost become a permanent fixture in the neighborhood.”
