A 13-year-old girl was still hospitalized with life-threatening injuries after she was hit by a taxi Friday night in San Francisco near Pine and Stockton streets.
A sign posted near the intersection said no crossing, because it's hard to see the cars coming up a hill until the last second.
Police said preliminary reports suggest the girl ran into traffic.
Some neighbors said they heard the sound when the car struck a the girl on Pine Street, just west of Stockton Street near Union Square.
Renata Elias came outside her apartment soon after the accident.
Police said the girl was visiting from out of town with her family when she ran into the street and was hit by a taxi.
"I'm new to SF, in the last five months, so this is a new area for me and I'm aware of the problems with this crosswalk in particular, so it breaks my heart, having children of my own," Elias said. "She was crossing there (and) she didn't see the car until it was pretty much on top of her."
Neighbors told KTVU the intersection is especially dangerous because of a hill, where fast moving cars on Pine Street appear out of nowhere.
Police said the girl was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
The hospital could not give an update Saturday night on her condition.
