The driver of the vehicle, who is not suspected of drug or alcohol impairment, remained on scene and cooperated with police.

This is the first traffic fatality of 2021 according to WalkSF, an organization attempting to reduce accidents and deaths on San Francisco streets.

“We mourn this loss of precious life on our streets,” said Jodie Medeiros, executive director of Walk San Francisco. “These tragedies will continue unless meaningful action is taken. Far too many people are paying the highest price for unsafe streets.”
