(04-04) 17:06 PDT San Francisco — A San Bruno man who was hospitalized after being hit by a cyclist last Thursday died Monday, authorities said.
Sutchi Hui, 71, was walking across Castro Street eastbound in the crosswalk at Market Street just after 8 a.m. when the cyclist collided with him, authorities said. The cyclist was traveling south on Castro.
Hui and the cyclist, whose name was not released, were both taken to San Francisco General Hospital after the collision.
Hui died at the hospital, said hospital spokesman Tristan Cook. Neither the medical examiner nor police would say if Hui’s death resulted from the injuries he sustained during the crash.
The district attorney’s office is in talks with San Francisco police about the case, although police have not yet forwarded the case to prosecutors, said Omid Talai, a spokesman for the district attorney.
In another case where a bicyclist hit a pedestrian, the district attorney charged Randolph Ang, 23, with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter for running through a red light and hitting a pedestrian, 68-year-old Dionette Cherney, who later died of her injuries.
He pleaded guilty to the charge in March and was sentenced to three years’ probation and 500 hours of community service and was also ordered to pay Cherney’s family $15,375 in restitution.
