A pair of SFPD officers on motorcycles were struck head-on by a car at around 5 pm Tuesday afternoon, with the car reportedly being that of an Uber driver, and both officers and the driver are hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Two San Francisco Police officers on motorcycles were struck head-on by a moving automobile at approximately 5 pm Tuesday afternoon, according to KTVU, and both officers plus the driver remain hospitalized after the brutal-looking crash. The officers were driving westbound on Cesar Chavez Street when both collided head-on with a car near Pennsylvania Avenue, for reasons that have not yet been explained.

KGO has footage from the scene, where we see both motorcycles on the ground with parts strewn about. A red Nissan Ultima is seen with significant damage to its front end and its left front wheel completely torn off. The station also has footage from SF General Hospital, with a stream of officers coming to pay their visits, as well as Mayor London Breed.

"They're both in good spirits, talked with one of them and waiting to talk with a second," SFPD Chief Bill Scott told KGO. "This department is like a close-knit family so when somebody gets injured particularly something this serious this is pretty common, we come here to support. This is what we do. We try to take care of each other.”

No names have been released, but eyewitnesses told KGO that the automobile driver was an Uber driver.

Eyewitness Dana Cambra said that one of his co-workers "said that was my Uber driver that I was gonna get in. She came in and went out like a ghost, like oh my lord, I was going to get in that car, you know."

SFPD would not confirm whether it was an Uber driver, but Uber put out a statement making it pretty clear that it was.

"We are thankful no one was seriously injured, and are wishing everyone a speedy recovery,” the company said in a statement to KGO. “We are continuing to look into this incident, and are standing by to assist law enforcement on their investigation."

All three crash victims remain hospitalized with injuries described as non-life-threatening. SFPD says there is no evidence of impairment  from drugs or alcohol.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the SFPD tip line at 415-575-4444, or text a tip to TIP411 and begin the message with “SFPD.” Tipsters can remain anonymous.
