Update: The victim of the fatal car crash has been identified as San Francisco resident Stanley Tickens by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police report a 63-year-old man was killed and a woman in her 40s suffered serious injuries in a car crash on 18th and Guerrero streets Sunday evening. At 4:39 p.m., the man was reportedly driving northbound on Guerrero Street when he crossed the median and collided with traffic coming in the other direction. The driver who had crossed the median was killed, while the woman in the oncoming vehicle was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries including a broken wrist and facial injuries.

In a hit-and-run at 7:41 p.m. on Friday, a 21-year-old woman driving a Ford Expedition hit a 57-year-old woman at 23rd and Shotwell Streets, then drove away. The victim suffered a lacerated liver and spleen as well as a broken leg and was transported to the hospital, though police indicate her injuries were non-life-threatening. The vehicle was later located, and the driver was arrested.

  1. Cars belonging to churchgoers are illegally parked in the middle of the street every sunday. I am curious if the guy who died was driving in the left lane and suddenly saw an abandoned car sitting in front of him.
    The churches and synagogue do not have permits and police look the other way because, you know, God and Jesus are so great.
