Before long, police units converged on the area, but the streets were too congested with vehicles stopped near the sideshow for patrol cars to get close, initially leaving police a block away.
People on foot and in vehicles were seen leaving the area as police approached. Eventually, SFPD SUVs and a SFFD truck were able to enter the intersection and stop any further stunts. However, most of the cars that gathered for the sideshow activity fled the scene, with some cars actually passing between police units as they left.
