A police pursuit of a carjacking suspect Tuesday morning ended in a violent crash into a bus stop outside the Potrero Center shopping area at 16th Street and Potrero Avenue, leaving five people seriously injured and businesses damaged.

As KRON4 reports, the incident began around 10 a.m. after SFPD officers responded to a report of a carjacking at Folsom and Mabini streets. Officers identified a vehicle matching the description of the stolen vehicle near Kansas and 25th streets, and a pursuit ensued.

The suspects appear to have sped west on 25th Street and north on Potrero Avenue, crashing at the busy intersection of 16th and Potrero.

Five people were injured, including bystanders and possibly suspects in the vehicle or in other vehicles involved. Images from the scene show at least two vehicles involved, including a white Ford pickup truck that hit the bus stop.

Property damage from the crash appears to have included a bus stop, a Boston Market, and an O'Reilly Auto Parts store.
