62-Year-Old Woman Seriously Injured In Suspected DUI Crash

On Thursday, 2 deadly accidents happened and a 62-year-old woman was critically injured in one of them. Police said that the accidents were not linked which involved rolled over vehicles and occurred in San Francisco’s Mission District.

Cops approached the accident spot at about 3 p.m. that happened near Mission and 15th streets. They found a crashed SUV on the location. The SUV had hit 6 parked motor vehicles before it rolled over.

The woman who sustained serious injuries was going to sit in her parked car when she was hit by the SUV. She was thrown several feet away from her motor vehicle when the SUV hit her as she was struck by too much force which injured her critically. She sustained traumatic brain injuries in the accident and was rushed to a hospital, but succumbed to her injuries.

According to Officer Carlos Manfredi, the name of 51-year-old man who was behind the wheel of the SUV was not made public by the police and he was taken into custody for:

  • Driving while under the influence
  • Speeding
  • Using a cell phone

After almost 30 minutes of this deadly accident, a rollover collision was reported that happened near 13th Street and South Van Ness Avenue. A truck collided with another vehicle due to which the truck rolled over. The timing of the accident was 3:30 p.m. Both the accidents were not connected to each other.

The driver of the truck sustained injuries, but it is not known if his condition is serious or stable.

The cops are investigating both accidents and they are also struggling to find the causes behind the accidents.

Officer Carlos Manfredi said on Thursday night about the unrelated accidents, “It’s unique to have two rollovers so close together in the same district during rush hour.”
