A man is in life-threatening condition after being struck by a driver in the Marina District on Saturday night. 

The incident occurred at Lombard and Steiner streets, around 8:27 p.m. The pedestrian, a 40-year-old man, was hospitalized in critical condition. 

Police did not share details about the driver, only noting that they remained at the scene and cooperated with officials. No arrest was made. 

With three travel lanes running in each direction, this segment of Lombard Street has been identified as a high-injury corridor under the city's Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024.

Led by SF Public Works, the Lombard Street Vision Zero Project is set to conclude in June. It aims to improve pedestrian safety on the corridor, as well as improve utilities, traffic signals and transit performance. Steiner Street is among the intersections included in the project.

Many of the pedestrian improvements to Lombard, including signal timing adjustments, intersection daylighting and enhanced crosswalk and intersection striping, have already been in place since 2016. The completed project will also feature pedestrian bulb-outs, tightened corner radii and pedestrian islands.
