A 41-year-old woman remains in critical condition this morning after she was hit by a car as she stepped into the street in the city's Mission District last night.

According to police, the woman was on the 5000 block of Mission Street when the car, turning left onto Mission, hit her. She was reportedly stepped out between two parked cars outside of the crosswalk when she was hit, police said.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

Police had no further details about the incident, which marks the third pedestrian hit by a car or a bike in the last two weeks. On March 29, 71-year-old Sutchi Hui was walking through the Castro neighborhood when a cyclist allegedly blew a red light and hit him. He died in the hospital on Tuesday.

Just 12 hours before that, a 60-year-old woman was struck, possibly by a Muni bus, in a hit-and-run accident downtown. Police are still investigating that incident.

So if you are participating in National Walk to Work Day today, please watch out for cars and bikes.

  • 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.'"
