Pedestrian Body Count - August 11 2009.

Update: I missed this one via Streetsblog.

A pedestrian is in the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a hit-and-run collision yesterday. SFPD spokesperson Sgt. Lyn Tomioka said the collision occurred near California Street and Van Ness Avenue at 8:20 p.m. The driver was believed to be in a white pickup truck. A license plate number was not available.

Dateline San Francisco.

A Honda hybrid, it seems, "[c]lobbered a few pedestrians and stopped the N for a bit in both directions" this morning at 7th Avenue and Irving.

Per SFist.

Muni tells us that "service on the F Market Line has been disrupted due to an accident involving a pedestrian and an F Line streetcar at Market and 9th streets"

Per SF Appeal

Fortunately for these pedestrians, they were not subjected to an attack by a marauding horde of cyclists, for surely had they suffered this fate - they would have almost been hit!
