Five people were sent to the hospital today after two cars crashed into each other at 19th Avenue and Sloat, shutting down the Sunset District intersection.

According to the Chronicle, at around 2 p.m., "one car jumped the curb and hit a pedestrian after the collision." The victim was rushed over to SFGH with "life-threatening injuries." Also, 19th Avenue needs to be wiped from the face of the earth.

UPDATE: After getting hit in the back and pinned against a light post, the pedestrian who sustained serious injuries later died at SFGH. 19th Avenue still remains shutdown.
