Police have arrested a hit-and-run driver who allegedly killed a pedestrian in Chinatown early this morning.

Around 5am, a 64-year-old woman was found in the roadway near Broadway and Stockton suffering from life-threatening injuries. Although there were no witnesses and "no driver or vehicle was present," evidence at the scene, which included a smashed grocery cart, "showed a possible vehicle collision." 

After an investigation, police located a 35-year-old male suspect and placed him under arrest. The victim was transported to a hospital, but she succumbed to injuries she received in the crash.

According to the Department of Health, the intersection where the collision occurred is on the city's high-injury network—the 12 percent of city streets where more than 70 percent of the most severe and fatal injuries occur.

Anyone who has information about this incident is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
