Stolen car strikes pedestrians, taxi


A stolen vehicle struck two pedestrians and a taxi in a hit-and-run collision on the corner of Post and Jones streets Monday night, a police spokesman said.

At 10:18 p.m., police attempted to pull over a vehicle for a traffic infraction violation at Larkin and Post streets. The vehicle fled and ran a red light before colliding with a taxi two blocks away, police spokesman Officer Albie Esperanza said.

The impact of the collision sent the vehicles onto the sidewalk, injuring two pedestrians. One pedestrian sustained life-threatening injuries and the other is still being evaluated, according to Esperanza.

The suspect in the vehicle attempted to flee the scene, but was taken into custody after boarding a westbound 38 Geary bus.

The vehicle was reported as stolen, according Esperanza. Both pedestrians were transported to San Francisco General Hospital. The taxi driver was uninjured, Esperanza said.
