The suspect suffered minor injuries in the collisions
SAN FRANCISCO — Police in San Francisco say two people were killed and a third critically injured when a shooting suspect fleeing police slammed into another vehicle that then hit a pedestrian.
Officers tried to pull over the Chevrolet Impala in the city's Mission District on Tuesday morning. Police had received reports of shots fired from the vehicle near a housing project.
Authorities say the driver sped off as an officer approached and ran two intersections before broadsiding a Toyota.
A female passenger in the Toyota was killed. A pedestrian who was entering a liquor store was also killed when he was struck by the Toyota.
The Toyota's driver suffered life-threatening injuries. All three were in their 20s.
The male suspect suffered minor injuries. Neither he nor the victims were identified.
