Police chase ends in downtown SF crash

7 p.m. UPDATE

A wanted parolee was taken into custody Monday afternoon after a pursuit with San Francisco police that resulted in some injuries.

Around 5:30 p.m. police in the Bayview attempted to arrest the parolee in the 1400 block of Innes Avenue, according to an SFPD press release.

The suspect got into a vehicle and led officers on a pursuit. The pursuit ended at 5th and Mission streets. The suspect struck two cars and injured at least two motorists who sustained non-life threatening injuries, police said.

One motorist was taken to the hospital, while the other was treated and released at the scene. The name of the suspect hasn't been released.

6 p.m.

A Gold Cadillac that was being chased by several police cruisers on Fifth Street rammed several vehicles in an effort to escape before it got lodged in traffic late Monday afternoon, said a witness at the scene.

Erinne Seay first saw the car heading west on Howard street, but then saw it take a sharp turn north onto Fifth Street before it got stuck between two other cars.

“I was walking across the street, the crosswalk said we could go and then all of a sudden he was driving crazy, his tire was blown and then he almost hit a few of us so we run across the street, he hits a car, then he hits another car and he just kept going,” said Seay.

The Cadillac, which was going against traffic on Fifth Street, had its tires blown out and at least two other cars were damaged from the collision.

It is unclear if the driver was detained at the scene, but a man was seen being taken away on a stretcher from the accident site. ​​accidentBay Area NewsCrimeCrime & CourtsPolice chaseSan Francisco Crime
