Two San Francisco Police Department officers were rushed to the hospital Sunday afternoon, after a driver who allegedly ran a red light slammed into their patrol car.
According to the SFPD, a 48-year-old woman driving a white, 2004 Lexus RX330 Sport Utility vehicle ran the red at the intersection of Evans Avenue and Phelps Street at 5:19 p.m. Sunday, crashing into a patrol car that was driving on the green.
Both police officers in the vehicle received lacerations to the head, police say, and expressed "complaints of pain to head, neck, and chest."
According to Bayview Police Station Captain Raj Vaswani, both officers were transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment, as was the driver of the SUV. All suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening.
According to SFPD spokesperson Officer Carlos Manfredi, who spoke with the Chron, “It appeared to just be a regular vehicle accident. There wasn’t any foul play. It wasn’t a hit and run.”
