Self-driving vehicle runs over, pins woman in San Francisco; operator claims human hit her first

A woman in San Francisco was found with life-threatening injuries late Monday after being run over and trapped under a self-driving car, authorities said.

First responders arrived at 5th and Market Streets just after 9:30 p.m. and found the woman underneath the left rear axle of a stopped Cruise autonomous vehicle, San Francisco Fire Capt. Justin Shore told FOX KTVU at the scene.

“Rescuers did not have any drivers or any passengers to ask about the nature of the injuries or how the victim came to be beneath the vehicle,” Shore said. 

Officers rendered aid to the woman and medics rushed to her a hospital for life-threatening injuries, said Officer Robert Rueca, a San Francisco Police Department spokesman.

Authorities asked anyone with information about the collision to SFPD at 415-575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with SFPD.
