Three people were injured in an Oak Street accident that also shut down the major thoroughfare for most of the afternoon Sunday.

Drivers heading out of San Francisco Sunday are advised to avoid Oak Street, because the intersection is closed between Broderick and Scott streets, according to San Francisco Fire Battalion Chief Kevin Taylor.

The accident, which occurred at Divisadero around 3:37 p.m., involves three cars and a motorcycle. The cause of the incident remains under investigation.

Three people, including two people on a motorcycle, were transported to San Francisco General Hospital with non life threatening injuries, Taylor said.

The third victim was pulled from a car that had rolled over, San Francisco Police Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

There is no estimated time for the road to reopen, Taylor said, but noted it would be a “major investigation.”

“My belief is it will be closed for a couple of hours,” Taylor said.
