The 14th Pedestrian Killed in SF this Year
Beverly Kees, was struck and killed by a truck as she was attempting to cross a street in San Francisco.
Kees, 63, was a longtime journalist and author. Most of her career was spent as a reporter and then editor in Minneapolis.
Ms. Kees co-authored “Nothing Sacred: Journalism, Politics and Public Trust in a Tell-All Age”
The driver of the truck has not been charged. There was no evidence that traffic laws were violated.
As I drive my taxi, in the South Bay and San Francisco, I am always astonished that pedestrians will step off the curb without looking. Please, it only takes a brief second.
