SAN FRANCISCO—Two women were reported to be seriously injured in auto accidents on Wednesday, July 15. The incidents occurred in the Sunset District and in the downtown area, and are unrelated.
A 19-year-old woman was struck at approximately 10:05 p.m., adjacent to Lincoln and 43rd. The accident resulted in a severe head injury and the fracturing of her femur. Officer Albie Esparza stated that the woman was crossing an intersection when the vehicle struck her.
A 22-year-old woman was injured near Bush and Taylor Street while riding on top of the hood of a vehicle in motion at approximately 2:00 a.m.. The cause of the victim’s injury remains to be unclear. Police have determined that the victim was either struck by the car after falling off, or struck the concrete upon falling off of the vehicle.
Authorities suspects the vehicle responsible for the accident is a silver coop-sedan. The driver fled north on Taylor Street after releasing all passengers.
Officer Esparza stated that both women are currently in the San Francisco General Hospital due to their life-threatening head injuries. No suspects have been arrested in either incident.
