10 People Injured after Vehicle Rams into Chinatown Bus Stop
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (December 16, 2016) – A Friday afternoon collision at a Chinatown bus stop at the intersection of Stockton and Clay Street left ten people injured. The crash occurred at approximately 12:35 p.m. on Friday when a woman driving down Stockton Street, for reasons unknown, lost control of her vehicle, swiped the side of a parked Mercedes Benz, hit a white Nissan, and then plowed into the crowd at the bus stop.
A total of ten people were reportedly injured, and five were confirmed to be in serious condition. Their injuries ranged from open fractures to broken legs and head injuries. The five critical victims were immediately transferred to San Francisco General Hospital.
The other five injured people were taken via ambulance to a local general hospital. According to San Francisco Supervisor and Chinatown Representative, Aaron Peskin, who witnessed the collision, “There were lots of individuals on the ground, many of them bleeding. There’s blood all over the sidewalk. It’s a horrific scene.” The woman who caused the accident remained at the scene and was cooperative with police and investigators.
“Any injured party involved in an accident will have a bodily injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident,” said a California car accident and personal injury lawyer.
