An elderly San Francisco woman was struck by a vehicle, while attempting to cross Ralston Avenue Sunday night. The collision is still under investigation, but Lt. Patrick Halleran of the Belmont Police Department has released the following information:
On Sunday at approximately 8:10pm, Belmont police and fire units responded to a report of an auto-pedestrian collision in the 1500 block of Ralston Avenue (near NDNU). Upon arrival, officers found that the pedestrian, an 80-year-old San Francisco woman, had been struck while attempting to cross the street with a friend. The woman was struck by a Toyota Sienna mini-van that was westbound on Ralston Avenue, driven by a Belmont woman. The pedestrian's companion was not injured.
The woman was treated at the scene by Belmont Fire Department paramedics and transported to an area hospital with major injuries. At this time the woman is still in the hospital and no update on her condition is available.
Police say the driver is cooperating with investigators, and that neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors at this time.
Patch will update this story as information becomes available.
