Female pedestrian struck, injured on Sunset Boulevard 

A 20-year-old woman was struck and injured by a car while walking in San Francisco's Sunset District this afternoon, police and fire officials said.

The incident was reported at 2:38 p.m. at Sunset Boulevard and Yorba Street, according to a fire official.

The woman, who was crossing Sunset Boulevard while walking westbound on Yorba Street when she was hit, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, San Francisco police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

Newman said the driver, a 25-year-old female, remained at the scene and was cooperating with investigators. She was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

The intersection is the same place where 78-year-old Isaak Berenzon was fatally struck on Feb. 4.

Jenny Ching, 71, was arrested and cited on suspicion of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk for Berenzon's death.
