It was a deadly weekend for motorists and pedestrians in San Francisco, where five separate accidents killed four people, including a 17-year-old boy.
As we reported earlier, 28-year-old Mary Doering was killed in a car accident on Highway 280 on Friday night; traffic was blocked for at least an hour while investigators analyzed the scene. Then on Saturday, an unidentified man was killed by a BART train at Glen Park Station at about 2:30 p.m. A spokesman for BART says the train operator did not see the man, who was on the tracks for reasons as yet unknown. There were no witnesses to the accident, which is still under investigation.
Later that evening, a 38-year-old man was killed after a taxi driver ran a red light and collided into another car and the victim, who was walking in the crosswalk at Eddy and Larkin streets, said Officer Albie Esparza. The man, who has not been identified, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.
