One Dead after Multi-Vehicle Collision at San Francisco International Airport
SAN FRANCISCO (July 3, 2019) – One person died and two were hurt after a multi-vehicle crash at the San Francisco International Airport.
The crash happened on the arrivals section of the lower level into the international terminal at around 3:30 p.m., on Monday.
Authorities say two men and one woman were loading their suitcases into a car at the arrivals section of the terminal. There, a black Ford Expedition slammed into the rear of the car into which they were loading their luggage.
Paramedics rushed all three victims to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. However, one of the male victims succumbed to his injuries and was later pronounced dead around 4:28 p.m.
Reports identified the driver of the Ford as a 46-year-old male. However his name has not been released. He allegedly accelerated his speed prior to spinning out and striking the pedestrians.
The driver of the Ford remained on scene and cooperated with officials. He did not show any signs of impairment, and the incident did not appear to be intentional.
Officers diverted traffic to the upper level until they cleared the scene. However, the area has since reopened.
The San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Collision Investigation Unit is still currently investigating the incident.
Our condolences remain with the loved ones of the victims during this difficult time. We hope they are brought peace and comfort while grieving their loss.
