Ten people are injured, with five suffering "major injuries," after a driver crashed a car into a Chinatown bus stop on the 800 block of Stockton Street at Sacramento. The Chronicle reports that the incident occurred around 12:30 p.m. today, and SFFD declared a "red alert."
“It looks like they hit some people, causing further injuries,” SFPD spokesperson Giselle Talkoff told the paper. SFFD tweeted that 10 people have been transported to the hospital. Two of them are in critical condition.
“There were a lot of individuals on the ground,” Supervisor Aaron Peskin, who was nearby when the crash occurred, told the Chron. “Many were bleeding. Pretty horrific scene.”
Three separate vehicle were involved in the crash, and the driver of the sedan (the car that hit the bus stop) remained on the scene after the incident. SFPD is leading the response, and the surrounding area will be closed for several hours as police investigate.
