In a separate incident yesterday, a pedestrian was struck by a driver in the Upper Haight. Police say the victim, a 47-year-old man, walked into the street near Haight and Masonic around 9:20 p.m., where he was struck by a 37-year-old male driver. The victim was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver also remained at the scene.

Both Seventh and Berry streets and Haight Street and Masonic Avenue are considered high-injury corridors under the city's Vision Zero plan to eliminate all traffic fatalities by 2024.
