Neighbors raise funds for victim, assist in investigation of hit and run on Arguello

Hit and run survivor, Susannah Cain

On the night of February 8, Richmond District resident Susannah Cain was crossing the street at Anza and Arguello when a car struck her, throwing her 30 feet down the street. Cain, age 73, survived the hit and run accident and miraculously only suffered a concussion, bruising and abrasions.

Police are investigating the incident, but it’s been Cain’s neighbors who have taken the lead on trying to find more clues and identify of the driver.

Jude, a neighbor and friend of Cain’s who lives near the intersection where the accident occurred, has gathered surveillance video and photos from several cameras owned by nearby neighbors to aid in the investigation. He also posted flyers near the intersection and has found witnesses to come forward and make statements.

Cain has not been able to work in her career as a massage therapist since the accident. To help ends meet, neighbors have started a GoFundMe page for her that so far has raised nearly $4,000. Cain hopes to be back at work in a couple of weeks, and will use the funds to cover medical expenses.

Anyone who knows anything about the incident is asked to call the San Francisco police call or text 415-235-4292.
