SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — MUNI service on Market Street has been rerouted due to a car crash Wednesday afternoon. Video shows at least two vehicles were involved in a crash on Market Street.
The incident originated after shots were fired around 4:15 p.m. in the area of Lombard Street and Laguna Street, the San Francisco Police Department said in an email to KRON4. The occupant of the victim car told police he was involved in a road rage incident with another car, which resulted in a non-injury vehicle collision. The driver of the suspect car walked out of the car and fired the gun before fleeing the scene.
SFPD found a car matching the suspect’s vehicle description and attempted to stop the car. A brief car chase led to the car being stopped on Market Street near Front Street, according to police. Two occupants of the suspect car were detained.
Photos at the scene show one two-door white coupe with damage to its front. Another car was flipped to its side. It has not been determined which car in these photos is the suspect vehicle.
Emergency crews are on the scene. SFPD officers are at the scene investigating.
