SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — San Francisco police are responding to a traffic collision in San Francisco, according to authorities.
A little after 4 p.m., a burgundy Toyota Prius was traveling westbound on 23rd Street then turned northbound onto Mission Street. The car struck two pedestrians and continued along Mission Street, police say.
The car drove onto the sidewalk and struck a Muni bus and a passenger who was exiting the bus.
The driver and passenger initially drove off and fled the scene, but later returned to the scene and were detained.
Two San Francisco residents, 34 and 49-year-old men, are in surgery for life-threatening injuries. A female victim of unknown age was treated by paramedics.
The driver and passenger are being evaluated medically. At first, officials said they suspected drugs or alcohol were involved, but they later ruled that out. The suspect was driving a “great” speed, but SFPD cannot determine the mph.
