San Francisco General Hospital officials have released a photo of an elderly woman who remains unidentified after being struck by a car and critically injured on Van Ness Avenue last week.
The woman was admitted to San Francisco General Hospital on June 8 around 11:30 p.m. after she was hit by a car at the corner of Vallejo Street and Van Ness Avenue, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.
She is described as an Asian woman in her 70s or 80s with gray hair and brown eyes. She is 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighs approximately 130 pounds.
She remains in critical condition and has been unable to tell staff her name. Other efforts to identify her have been unsuccessful, Kagan said.
Police said the woman was crossing Van Ness Avenue against the light when she was struck by a four-door black sedan.
Police arrested the driver, Douglas Perine, 41, following the crash. Perine, a San Francisco resident, is suspected of driving under the influence.
A call to the District Attorney's Office regarding the status of Perine's case has not been returned.
Anyone with information about the woman's identity is asked to call the hospital's sheriff's department at (415) 206-8063 or the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
Some tragedies at hospitals might be unavoidable, but a mother and father who lost their 21 month old daughter at Children's Hospital Oakland say it's what happened after their daughter's death that has continued to torment them.
