San Francisco police arrested a man who tried to flee after he crashed into two other men loading a grill into their truck in The City’s South of Market neighborhood on Wednesday night, according to police.

The crash was reported at 11:11 p.m. when a 25-year-old man speeding down Mission Street near Eighth Street in a red Hyundai Sonata crashed into a 39-year-old man and a 43-year-old man who were loading the grill into the back of a truck, police said.
