Medical authorities this morning identified 84-year-old Isabel Huie as the woman who was killed by an accelerating car in the city's Chinatown district.

The incident happened yesterday morning, just before 11:30 a.m.; the driver, a 76-year-old woman, was in her silver sedan parked eastbound on Jackson Street when she suddenly accelerated, hitting a pole, another car, and two people, including Huie and another unidentified man, says Sgt. Eric O'Neal.

The two victims and the driver were all taken to San Francisco General Hospital; Huie, a San Francisco resident, was pronounced dead. The male victim's injuries are unknown at this time, O'Neal says.

The driver has not been arrested, according to police.

This is the second elderly pedestrian fatality in 24 hours. This morning an elderly man was killed by a Recology truck driving through the Tenderloin District. The victim has not yet been identified.

  • 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.'"
