May you never have a doctor with bedside manner approaching that of a police writeup. Case in point: A summary of a nasty pedestrian vs. vehicle incident on Market Street last night. 

"Injury: Possible broken neck, scalp laceration, fractured pelvis. Non life threatening injures."

Yeah. Walk it off. In any event, here's how all of that happened:

A 46-year-old Hispanic man stepped off a Muni bus at a shade after 8 p.m. in the 1200 block of Market Street last night.

He attempted to cross the street in an unlit area without a crosswalk -- and was struck by a westbound car. The driver of the car did not attempt to flee and the police traffic company is investigating whether or not he or she is at fault.

Hopefully they have a gentler touch than the injury-assessors.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
