Crash Near San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park Sends 4 To Hospital

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A collision between two cars near San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park Tuesday afternoon sent four people to the hospital and one driver may be facing charges, police said.

The collision was reported at 3:40 p.m. at Hayes and Steiner streets, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.

Four injured victims were found at the scene, all with moderate to severe injuries, but none considered life-threatening, Esparza said.

They were all taken to a hospital.

Police said that an investigation indicates that one of the four victims had already been involved in a hit-and-run with a parked car at Hayes and Divisidero streets just before the crash.

She then continued driving on Hayes Street, where she ran a stop sign and collided with the other vehicle carrying the other three victims, Esparza said.

That driver may be facing charges of reckless driving, speeding and misdemeanor hit-and-run. All four victims remain hospitalized Tuesday night, Esparza said.
