Two pedestrians suffered life-threatening injuries and a third person complained of pain following a possible DUI late Wednesday afternoon in San Francisco, police said.
Officers responded at 4:20 p.m. to a traffic collision at 23rd and Mission streets.
Police said preliminary information shows that a Toyota Prius was traveling west on 23rd Street and turned north onto Mission Street, striking the pedestrians.
The car continued along Mission Street, went onto the sidewalk, struck a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus and a passenger getting off the bus.
Police said the driver of the car and a passenger left the area but returned later and were detained. The pedestrians were taken to the hospital while the bus passenger was evaluated at the site of the collision and released.
Medical personnel are evaluating the driver of the Toyota and its passenger, according to police.
Anyone with information about the collision is asked to call the Police Department’s 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the message.
