Teen critically injured in major Bayview District car crash

Police report that speed was a factor in crash that sent four people to the hospital.

Updated (8:17 a.m.): A teenage girl remains in critical condition after a car she was in crashed into a fire hydrant in the Bayview District early Thursday morning.

A total of four people were hospitalized, though three of the car’s occupants had been discharged at the time of publication, according to Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital Spokesperson Brent Andrew.

Officers responded to the crash at Third Street and Carroll Avenue at 1:13 a.m. The silver Mazda sheared off the hydrant, causing flooding at the intersection.

While the cause of the crash has yet to be determined, police indicated Thursday that speed appears to be a factor, and have launched an investigation into the incident.
