Man Revs Engine, Strikes Woman With Car In Upper Haight

A woman who intervened in an argument in the Upper Haight yesterday was hospitalized after a man involved in the dispute struck her with an automobile.

The incident occurred near Buena Vista Avenue West and Waller Street at 2pm when a 53-year-old woman tried to quell a verbal dispute between a man approximately 30 years old and an unknown female.
