Elderly Pedestrian Dies After Fall Involving Bus


A fall involving a Golden Gate Transit bus in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood resulted in the death of an elderly pedestrian.

Around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, the bus was turning right after letting a few pedestrians cross at the crosswalk.

As the bus was turning, the 66-year-old victim fell backward, hitting his head on the bus and then the ground. The victim was taken to the hospital where he died of his injuries.

According to a spokesman for the San Francisco Police, the exact chain of events is still under investigation. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that it is unknown whether the man was on the sidewalk or in the crosswalk when the fall occurred.

The incident marks the eighth pedestrian death in San Francisco this year.
