Pedestrian hit in Castro collision dies

[Updated Thursday, April 5]: The pedestrian who was hit by a bicyclist while crossing Castro Street last week has died.

The San Fransico Medical Examiner’s office has identified the man as Sutchi Hui, 71, of San Bruno. The cause of death is pending.

Sergeant Michael Andraychak, a spokesman for the San Francisco Police Department, said that Hui, who’d been taken to San Francisco General Hospital immediately after the collision, died in the hospital Tuesday, April 3.

Andraychak said he couldn’t release the bicyclist’s name. He said that the investigation into the collision is ongoing and no one has been charged. The police inspector examining the case has been consulting with the district attorney’s office, he said.

According to police, the bicyclist was riding south on Castro Street at Market Street at about 8:08 a.m. last Thursday, March 29, when he struck Hui, who was walking eastbound in the crosswalk.

Witnesses indicated that the bicyclist may have run a red light, police said. Both men were taken to San Francisco General Hospital. As of last Thursday, the bicyclist’s condition was non-life threatening. Hui’s injuries were initially reported by police as life threatening, but they had been upgraded to non-life threatening soon after the incident.

Omid Talai, a spokesman for the DA’s office, hasn’t responded to interview requests on the case.

Andraychak said he didn’t know whether Hui or the bicyclist were LGBT.
