Businesses damaged after South City vehicle chase

A driver who led police on a chase overnight ended up crashing his pickup truck in South San Francisco early Thursday morning, damaging two businesses.

South San Francisco police Cpl. Doug Smith said Daly City police began chasing the Nissan pickup at about midnight but lost sight of it.

A short time later, the pickup was found crashed and overturned on Airport Boulevard, near Grand Avenue.

The driver, who had suffered major injuries and was trapped in the vehicle, was extricated and taken to San Francisco General Hospital, Smith said.

Smith said the pickup had struck some shrubbery and at least one parking meter, and had damaged two businesses, an auto parts company and a Peet's Coffee and Tea.

The auto parts store sustained structural damage, Smith said. An employee at Peet's said the only damage to that business was a shattered window, and that the store was open Thursday morning.

Daly City police were not immediately available Thursday to provide details on the chase.
