A police patrol car and a taxicab collided, subsequently hitting a fire hydrant and causing an intersection in San Francisco’s Bayview district to fill with water early Tuesday morning, police said.
The two vehicles collided at McKinnon Avenue and Toland Street at about 2:25 a.m., San Francisco police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
The police officer was driving the patrol car on McKinnon Avenue when the police vehicle collided with a taxi that was turning from Toland Street onto McKinnon Avenue. The two vehicles struck each other in the intersection, causing the police car to hit a fire hydrant and water to fill the roadway, Esparza said.
Both the police officer and the taxi driver were transported by ambulance to local hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, Esparza said.
