Pedestrian fatally stuck by car in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police are investigating the death of a man struck by a car while he was crossing the street.

Officer Gordon Shyy, a police spokesman, says the incident occurred Sunday night at Van Ness and Golden Gate avenues. Investigators say the car hit the man while he was crossing the intersection.

Shyy says early reports indicate that the man was not in the crosswalk when he was struck. The driver remained at the scene and is cooperating with police.

Seven people have been killed this year while crossing San Francisco streets, four of those have occurred along Van Ness Avenue.

City leaders say they are cracking down on such incidents as police have written 50 percent more traffic tickets this year than last year to encourage safer streets.
