A hit-and-run collision near San Francisco City Hall on Tuesday evening left a 29-year-old woman dead and three other people hospitalized, police said.
The collision was reported around 7 p.m. at Polk and Hayes streets, just a block south of City Hall, involving two vehicles and pedestrians. The San Francisco medical examiner’s office has identified the woman who died as Lovisa Svallingson but did not provide a city of residence for her.
San Francisco police spokesman Officer Adam Lobsinger said Svallingson died at the scene while a second pedestrian, a man, was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Investigators determined a Chevrolet Avalanche truck collided with an Audi A6 and then struck Svallingson and the man. There were four people in the Audi and two were taken to a hospital to be treated for injuries not considered life-threatening, Lobsinger said.
The Chevy driver was seen fleeing the scene of the collision and remained at large as of Wednesday morning. Police have not released any description of the suspect.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call the Police Department’s tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
