SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A pedestrian has been killed and another injured when they were struck by a car fleeing police during a wild chase through San Francisco, and the suspects involved are still on the loose.

Police say officers tried to stop the suspects' stolen car moments after they committed the latest in a series of armed robberies just before 10 p.m. Friday in the upscale Nob Hill neighborhood.

But the car sped off and struck a woman in a crosswalk, fatally injuring her. The car hit a second pedestrian several blocks later and then crashed into another car before slipping away from police in the South of Market neighborhood.

Police say the car was found unattended on Treasure Island off the Bay Bridge. The three men who were in it are still at large.
