Teenage girl still in critical condition from crash 

A 13-year-old girl remained hospitalized in critical condition today after a car crashed into her family's South San Francisco home Tuesday evening, police said.

The girl suffered broken ribs and head trauma, among other serious injuries, when a driver apparently lost control in the 3800 block of Callan Boulevard and veered off the roadway and into an apartment at about 6:15 p.m., police said.

Authorities are looking into whether the driver had a medical condition. The driver has not been arrested.

A family was in the home's living room at the time of the crash, and the girl suffered head trauma and was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, police said.

Her mother, father and the driver of the car were also hospitalized, but had less severe injuries and have since been released, South San Francisco police Sgt. Joni Lee said.

The apartment building sustained structural damage, rendering units on the first and second floors uninhabitable, police said. Water and gas service was disrupted throughout the complex.

The American Red Cross responded to help the displaced residents find temporary housing.
