Man shot by driver after collision on Bay Bridge

A man was shot by another driver in San Francisco’s South of Market neighborhood Wednesday night following a collision as he exited the Bay Bridge, police said.

The 21-year-old victim pulled over at Fremont and Folsom streets around 10 p.m. after another vehicle rear-ended him as he was exiting the Bay Bridge, police said.

But as he and the suspect got out of their vehicles, the suspect allegedly pulled out a handgun and shot him, according to police.

The suspect then got back in his car and fled. The victim was driven to a hospital by a relative and is expected to survive his injuries.

No arrest had been reported as of Thursday morning. Police described the suspect as a man in his mid 20s but did not provide a detailed description of him or his vehicle.
