David Chow Struck, Killed by Vehicle at Polk and O’Farrell Streets in San Francisco

David Chow ID’d as Man Killed in San Francisco Pedestrian Accident at Polk and O’Farrell Streets

San Francisco, California (February 26, 2020) – The man who was struck and killed by a vehicle Friday morning while walking across a street in the Tenderloin neighborhood has been identified as an 80-year-old San Francisco man.

David Chow died in the accident that happened on Friday, February 21, at the intersection of Polk and O’Farrell streets.

Authorities said Chow was crossing at the intersection of Polk and O’Farrell streets when he was hit by a vehicle.

Chow was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

According to the authorities, the driver of the vehicle involved stopped at the scene and cooperated with investigators. Alcohol or drugs were not suspected factors on the part of the driver.

No other details regarding the accident were given, and the crash remains under investigation.

A person on foot is no match for a vehicle. Pedestrians have virtually no protection when they are hit by cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other vehicles. Sadly, this often leads to catastrophic injuries and/or death. “Due to the incredibly serious nature of these types of injuries, pedestrian accident cases often require special care in order to help ensure victims receive the full compensation they need for extensive medical bills, ongoing rehabilitation therapy, in-home care, lost past and future earnings, and numerous other economic and non-economic damages”, Said Arin Khodaverdian, an experienced pedestrian accident attorney.

Arin noted that pedestrians, in most instances, have the right-of-way when crossing a street or an intersection. According to Arin, to properly investigate a pedestrian crash and prove negligence, enough resources are required. “A skilled attorney has the resources and will help investigate the accident to determine the party at fault,” Arin said
