The intersection of 16th Street and Capp Street was closed for nearly 45 minutes Thursday after a vehicle struck a pedestrian in the crosswalk.

The incident, which occurred around 2:20 p.m., involved a 4-door sedan traveling north on Capp Street and made a left on to 16th Street, according to San Francisco Police Department Officer Eric Chaing.

The pedestrian – described as a 52-year-old Hispanic male – was transported to an area hospital with minor injuries, Chaing said.

No arrests or citations were issued according to Chaing, but the driver of the 1990s Toyota Camry may have had the right of way in the incident.

Chaing said though the pedestrian was in the crosswalk at the time, it is unclear if he had the green light.

“It’s possible the pedestrian was under the influence of something,” Chaing said. “He may not have seen the car.”

The street closure affected the 22-Fillmore and 33-Stanyan Muni lines.

San Francisco police continue to investigate, Chaing said.
