SAN FRANCISCO – A pedestrian is seeking damages from a motorist who allegedly struck her while she was crossing at a San Francisco intersection.
Kate Kennedy filed a complaint on Nov. 5 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Henry Teledano and Does 1 to 20 alleging personal injury.
According to the complaint, on Nov. 26, 2016, Kennedy was lawfully crossing the street at the intersection of Pine and Hyde streets in San Francisco when she was allegedly struck by defendant Teledano's sedan while in the crosswalk. She alleges she had the right of way at the time of the collision.
The plaintiff holds Teledano responsible because the defendant allegedly violated California vehicle code.
