A 47-year-old woman is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle at 13th and Mission streets Monday evening, Sgt. Daryl Fong said.

The victim was walking in the crosswalk on Mission Street, approaching 13th Street, when a man made a right turn onto 13th Street and hit her, police said. The incident happened at about 5:48 p.m., according to police records. The woman suffered head and leg trauma and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where she remains, Fong said.

The man, identified by police as 54-year-old Craig Sheppard, fled the scene but was later stopped in the Ingleside neighborhood and taken into custody. Sheppard has been charged with a felony for the hit-and-run and one vehicle code infraction for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, Fong said.

  1. Bad intersection for pedestrians. Drivers in a rush to get to freeway on-ramp at S. Van Ness, ignoring those of us who actually use our legs.
    My thoughts are with the victim.

    1. Isn’t that right next to the city engineer building? Perhaps they should apply some of their brainpower to create exemplary pedestrian-friendly designs in their own backyard!
