    The San Francisco Police Department released a video still of the suspect vehicle in the fatal hit-and-run collision.

    Police are looking for the driver who hit and killed a woman walking in San Francisco's Visitacion Valley Thursday morning, a police spokesman said.

    The fatal collision was reported at 11:16 a.m. at Bayshore Boulevard and Visitacion Avenue, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

    The pedestrian, a woman identified Friday as 82-year-old Oi Yeung, had been walking east on Visitacion Avenue and crossing Bayshore Boulevard in a crosswalk with a green light, Esparza said.

    Police had initially believed Yeung was in her 60s.

    Yeung was struck when an SUV that had been heading east on Visitacion Avenue made a left turn onto Bayshore.

    The driver continued north on Bayshore before turning left onto Leland Avenue, a block away, Esparza said.

    Witnesses told police it looked like the driver was turning around to head back to the scene, but instead he drove away, south on Bayshore Boulevard, according to Esparza.

    The suspect is described as having short curly hair and light brown skin and is either black with light skin or Hispanic, Esparza said.

    He was driving a white Dodge Durango SUV with a black ski rack on top, according to Esparza.

    Yeung was pronounced dead at the scene, Esparza said.

    As of 2:50 p.m., San Francisco Municipal Railway buses and light-rail vehicles were affected by ongoing police activity, according to Muni spokesman Paul Rose.

    T-Third Street inbound light-rail vehicles are switching back at Armstrong Avenue and the 8X-Bayshore Express and 9-San Bruno bus lines are rerouting around the area.
