UPDATE: Pedestrian hit, injured by driver in South Park

4:51 PM: Avoid (corrected) 10th S./S. Cloverdale for a while. A driver has hit and injured a pedestrian. Police are there investigating, and SFD is there to treat the victim.

5:04 PM: Correction – the SFD log shows this is at 10th S/S Cloverdale. The latter is the main east-west through South Park. It’s just reopened, per police radio communication. We’ll be checking with SFD on the victim’s condition.

    I hope the person hit is ok.  It is unfortunate what happened.  #lookuplookaround #saferdriving #weallcomehomeok
    Sorry, everybody else is busy on the other story about shutting down roadways.

    As a resident of South Park… I hope this is not a sign of things to come…🤞

    There was also a moving hit and run at 35th & 102nd yesterday afternoon.  The vehicle that was hit was completely disabled.  The other car fled the scene, then returned a bit later.  They left their bumper, license plate included, in the street so pretty good incentive to return to the scene.  People are driving like idiots, even more than usual.

    Any update on this person’s condition? We need to support South Park and make sure they have traffic calming in place during the bridge detour.

    As a frequent pedestrian in South Park, it is dangerous for pedestrians and with more traffic coming through with the Bridge out, it will only get worse. SDOT needs to do more for the safety of pedestrians in South Park.

    And the traffic diverted from Cloverdale sped down adjacent side streets at high speed.  I live on Sullivan, was almost clipped by a vehicle yesterday.  Ppl speeding, looking down at thier phones. Come on.  This is pure stupidity.  This is a residential area, with a lot of children.  I drove for a living for 25 yrs, when you turn onto a residential street, you SLOW DOWN and WATCH OUT. That scenario where a little kid chases a ball into the street in between parked cars has happened to me.  Because I was driving slow and watching the road, I stopped in time.  NO EXCUSES.  Time was literally money to me behind the wheel, but I’d never drive over 20 mph on any side street. Usually less. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
