Two seriously injured in collision in Richmond district

Another careless driver has caused heartbreak in San Francisco.

Two women ages 22 and 23 were severely injured Saturday morning after a drunken driver plowed into their car in the Richmond, police said.

A 52-year-old man was booked for the 1:15 a.m. crash, the latest in a spate of disturbing collisions involving reckless drivers in The City.

The man rear-ended the car carrying the women eastbound on Fulton Street at Arguello Boulevard, police said. The women sustained life-threatening injuries, police said.

On Thursday, a 17-year-old girl was also fighting for her life following a collision that injured four young people in the Marina district. A 19-year-old driver was suspected of DUI in the wreck.

Five days earlier, a 65-year-old native of the Philippines died when an alleged drunken driver with a suspended license slammed into the side of the Mercedes she was riding in. She was less than a block from her home.

On Sept. 2, a 70-year-old, recently retired San Francisco woman was killed in a hit-and-run in the Haight.
