SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police say a driver faces felony charges in an early morning crash that killed a pedestrian, the fourth fatal pedestrian crash in the city in the past six weeks.

Officer Gordon Shyy says officers responded to the crash in the city's Pacific Heights neighborhood a little before 1 a.m. Wednesday. The driver was caught while allegedly trying to flee the scene.

Shyy says officers arrested 27-year-old Mageb Hussain of Emeryville on suspicion of felony vehicular manslaughter and felony hit and run.

The name of the victim has not been released. Shyy says speed appears to be a factor in the collision.

Wednesday's incident is the fourth pedestrian death involving a vehicle in six weeks. This includes a pedestrian who was struck by a car near City Hall last week and later died from his injuries.
