A wheelchair-bound pedestrian was struck by a car in the South of Market district and critically injured Friday, San Francisco police said.

The pedestrian was knocked out of the wheelchair while crossing inside a crosswalk northbound on Seventh Street at Harrison Street around 7:10 a.m.

It appears the pedestrian did not beat the light while crossing. While three lanes of traffic yielded to the pedestrian, a car in the fourth lane did not, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

The driver cooperated with police and was not intoxicated, Esparza said.

The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with life threatening injuries, the police spokesman said.
