Death of Melissa Dennison at Fell and Broderick Considered an Accident by SFPD Lt.

Monday, September 21st, 2009

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.”

(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…
