SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police say a San Francisco window washer has survived after falling 11 stories from a rooftop onto a moving car.

Sgt. Danielle Newman, a police spokeswoman, said the man was conscious when officers arrived Friday.

The man, whose name and age were not immediately available, was transported to a hospital with critical injuries.

Police said the motorist was making a left turn when the window washer fell onto the roof of the car.

The driver of the Toyota Camry was not injured.

Police say the man fell from the roof of a building in San Francisco's financial district and not from a window washing platform.

Blood, glass and a shoe were in the street as onlookers watched police work.
