Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed a woman walking in San Francisco’s Visitacion Valley on Thursday morning, a police spokesman said.

The fatal collision was reported at 11:16 a.m. at Bayshore Boulevard and Visitacion Avenue, Officer Albie Esparza said. It was the sixth vehicle-pedestrian fatality in The City this year.

The pedestrian, a woman in her 60s, had been walking east on Visitacion Avenue and crossing Bayshore Boulevard in a crosswalk with a green light, Esparza said.

She was struck when an SUV that had been heading east on Visitacion Avenue made a left turn onto Bayshore.

The driver continued north on Bayshore before turning left onto Leland Avenue, Esparza said.

Witnesses told police it looked like the driver was turning around to head back to the scene, but instead he drove away south on Bayshore, according to Esparza.

A detailed description of the suspect was not available. He was driving a white Dodge Durango SUV with a black ski rack on top, according to Esparza.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, Esparza said.

She has not yet been identified, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.
