Whoops, maybe not. What happened?
Well then, read all about it here, below.
Poor Sandra! Poor Kristy!
[UPDATE, APRIL 30, 2013: Pulled. Come back May 1 for details, if you want.]
[UPDATE, May 1, 2013: Oh, you're back! Well, you know, the same basic info has been posted here by SideCar and it pays off on the headline of cars getting impounded. So I guess that's that, for now. Thank you, drive through,]
BIKE NOPA has just posted details on the SFPD police report and the District Attorney’s response to the death of pedestrian Melissa Dennison, killed by a collision at the intersection of Fell and Broderick on September 15th, 2009.
The intersection of Fell and Broderick
The temporarily-widened sidewalks of Powell Street are no safe haven for boozing Saint Nicolaseses. Look out Santa, it’s the cops!
A detention and citation for this fellow:
Busting for drinking in public – a 12-ounce Tecate was the weapon:
It really is like a red tide – at 17th and Castro and Market in front of the Twin Peaks bar:
How many more Santas will get cited?
When will it end?
A San Francisco memorial for Melissa Dennison is set for Tuesday, September 29th, 6:00 PM at Ocean Beach (somewhere near the Beach Chalet, most likely). All the details are/will be here on this Facebook entry. From FB:
The scene at Fell and Broderick:
Read this bit here over at BIKE NOPA to see that at least one SFPD lieutenant doesn’t consider the death of pedestrian Melissa Dennison to be a case of vehicular manslaughter. According to Lt. Ramlin of Park Station, at this point:
“There is no determination that it was manslaughter.”
The memorial at Fell and Broderick as it appeared a few days ago:
(Personally, I think when people use the term “speeding” in regards to traffic on Fell and Oak, they’re not saying what mean. Are they talking about cars literally going more than 30 mph? It’s not clear.)
The police report should be coming out soon…
The makeshift memorial for killed pedestrian Melissa Dennison at the intersection of Fell and Broderick is still drawing observers.
More flowers have come and someone put up a large photo. As it looked last night:
A memorial is planned for this Sunday in the Lake Tahoe area.
“Please join family and friends to celebrate the life of Melissa Hope Dennison. A memorial service will be held at West End Beach on Sunday, Sept. 20, beginning at 1 p.m. Bring food, drinks, and memories to share. All are welcome at the West End Beach Donner Lake in Truckee.”
It appears as if somebody threw away the flowers at Fell and Broderick yesterday morning - they were placed there as a memorial for fallen San Francisco pedestrian Melissa Dennison. But tons more were added throughout the day.
And this was the scene last night. The intersection smelled like a florist’s shop:
People were reading reports from the Examiner and KTVU-TV.
At this point it’s not really clear how this quote from the ‘Xam…
“State law dictates that an intersection doesn’t need to marked to be considered a crosswalk.”
…is useful since all the crosswalks in the area are marked.
We’ll have to wait to see if the office of Kamala Harris will charge the driver…
This was the scene last night at the intersection of Fell and Broderick in the NoPA North of Panhandle Area. It’s the start of a memorial for 24 year old pedestrian Melissa Dennison, who was struck by a car and killed yesterday morning.

“Melissa, you were loved and will be missed by many.”
They’re already calling for incarceration of the driver at StreetsBlog SF.
A sad story.
