Uber officials have announced that one of their drivers who suffered a seizure and struck a pedestrian in San Francisco's Polk Gulch neighborhood on Saturday night will be removed from their app, pending a medical review.
The crash was reported at 9:58 p.m. Saturday near Polk and Geary streets.
The 56-year-old driver, whose name was not immediately being released, was taking passengers in his 2012 Mazda when he suffered the seizure, causing him to lose control of the vehicle, which hit three parked cars and then a man on the sidewalk, police spokeswoman Sgt. Danielle Newman said.
The pedestrian suffered a laceration to his head and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital. He is expected to survive, Newman said.
