Woman Arrested in San Francisco Hit-and-Run Crash Involving Stolen Vehicle that Injures Pedestrians
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 29, 2019) – Two pedestrians were hurt following a wild hit-and-run crash Wednesday afternoon.
The incident started around 2:00 p.m. in downtown San Francisco.
Video shared by police shows a female driver of a stolen silver Kia SUV striking a scaffolding on a sidewalk and hitting a worker walking with what appears to be a garbage can.
Meanwhile, officers swarmed around the vehicle while trying to avoid being hit.
Police said the woman hit several other cars in the area after striking the worker, then later hit another pedestrian at the corner of Eddy and Taylor Streets.
Both the worker and the other pedestrian were taken to a hospital, the second victim with life-threatening injuries.
Several others were also hurt but not hospitalized.
The suspect, who was wearing only a top and underwear, was finally taken into custody. She is being treated at a hospital as well. She was not identified.
