Girl Struck, Seriously Injured by Vehicle at Turk and Larkin Streets in Tenderloin

11-Year-Old Girl Seriously Injured in Tenderloin Pedestrian Accident at Turk and Larkin Streets

San Francisco, (March 17, 2020) – An 11-year-old girl was hit and seriously injured by a vehicle Saturday evening in the Tenderloin neighborhood in downtown San Francisco, according to a local news source.

The accident happened at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, March 14 at the intersection of Turk and Larkin streets.

Police said the girl was at the intersection when, for undetermined reasons, a van hit her.

The girl sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to a hospital for treatment. Her name and condition were not immediately disclosed.

The driver of the van, a 73-year-old man, stopped at the scene and was arrested by the police.

Further details about the crash were not immediately given, and the accident 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
