SFPD Seeks Public's Help In Finding Hit & Run Van That Killed Pedestrian

SFPD is asking for the public's help in finding a vehicle that was involved in a hit-and-run that killed a pedestrian last Friday, March 11th at Broadway and Powell Street. The incident occurred around 7am. 

The vehicle is described as a white van with no windows, possibly a 1997–2002 Ford Econoline. SFPD spokesperson Albie Esparza said it may have front-end damage where it struck Sun-Choi Law, a 63-year-old San Francisco resident.

Witnesses told officers they saw the van driving southbound on Powell Street. It then made a right turn onto westbound Broadway, hitting Law. The van fled, and Law died at the scene. The circumstances surrounding the collision are still under investigation. Police got a shot from a video camera of the van in question, but the quality is low.
