SAN FRANCISCO — A young girl died and two other people were injured in San Francisco after they were hit by a car while crossing the street on New Year’s Eve.
Officer Gordon Shyy says the three pedestrians – one woman and two children – were struck about 8 p.m. Tuesday in the city’s Tenderloin neighborhood.
Shyy says the woman’s injuries are life-threatening and that the surviving child, a boy, is expected to survive.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that police say drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors.
