A pair of accidents landed two women in the hospital with what are said to be serious injures. Though both accidents happened in San Francisco, they are not at all related to one another, as one accident happened in the downtown area, while the other took place in the Sunset District.
In one accident, a young woman was apparently crossing the street when she was hit by a car. She is 19 years old. The police said she was moving through an intersection. As a result of being hit, she broke her leg and she also suffered a head injury.
In the other accident, another young woman was apparently sitting on a car’s hood while it was being driven. This happened at about two in the morning. The woman then fell off of the car and was hurt. The police have not yet figured out if the injuries came from falling and hitting the ground or if the car continued forward and ran into her while she was on the ground. She is 22 years old.
That accident happened close to Bush Street and Taylor Street. The driver stopped after the crash, let all of the passengers out of the vehicle, and then fled the scene. The police are looking for that car, which is thought to be a coup or a sedan, and they think it is silver in color.
When pedestrians are hit by cars, serious injuries can lead to weeks or months in the hospital, along with very high medical bills, so these people need to know what they can do to get compensation.
