San Francisco Pedestrians Injured On Telegraph Hill’s Grant Ave

An accident involving two pedestrians hit by a car on 6/21/14 in San Francisco is one of the most recent examples of how pedestrians are getting seriously injured in a variety of ways in San Francisco.  This time, a 75-year-old man and a 3-year-old boy were rushed to San Francisco General Hospital with severe injuries after a car jumped onto the curb where they were walking on the 1900 block of Grant Ave in San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill neighborhood. According to SFPD, the driver, a 40-year-old male, is reported to have claimed that he thought he had shifted his Acura into park.

As a San Francisco pedestrian injury attorney who has handled numerous severe injury and death cases on behalf of victims and their families, I am unfortunately seeing more and more instances in which pedestrians are injured in places other than roadways or crosswalks, including many instances in which cars drive out of control onto the sidewalks.
