Two vehicles collided and both drivers were taken to the hospital. One of the drivers, an 82-year-old man, succumbed to his injuries. The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office is working to identify him.

The second driver suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

About two hours later, at about 3:30 p.m., officers responded to a second collision near the corner of Fillmore Street and Golden Gate Avenue.

Police said an 82-year-old woman was in the roadway when a motorcycle struck her. The woman was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
