SUV collides with SFPD vehicle, officers injured

An SUV collided with a San Francisco Police Department vehicle Sunday evening, and officers sustained minor injuries.

That SUV apparently ran a red light near Phelps Street and Evans Avenue, SFPD spokesperson Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

The vehicle “hit one of our patrol vehicles driving on the green,” he said, and “the SUV driver may have received injuries, we are on the scene with them.”

Manfredi said it sounded like it was “nothing more than an accident.”

Two officers in the SFPD vehicle were brought to San Francisco General Hospital, Manfredi said, as “one received lacerations to the head, another, chest pain.”

Both, “need to be evaluated either way,” Manfredi said.

The officer with head injuries was discharged from general, but the officer with chest pain was kept overnight.

The crash occurred around 6 p.m. said one bystander, Liam Min, who works at the Chevron station nearby. “I heard it, it made a boom sound, a crash sound,” he said. crashCrimeSFPD
