SFPD Officer Runs Red Light and Hits, Injures Two Cyclists

Earlier this month, a San Francisco Police Department patrol car ran a red light hitting and injuring two cyclists.

Through security footage captured at the time of the incident, the patrol car is seen traveling through an intersection along Vicente Street in the Sunset District of San Francisco, CA. The vehicle is seen traveling South as the cyclists are moving West. Upon entering the intersection, the vehicle collided with two cyclists, injuring both and hospitalizing one, each with non-life-threatening injuries. There is no indication from the video and audio footage captured that the officer’s lights nor sirens were activated at the time of the incident.

The SFPD has not responded to questions about the incident nor disclosed the identity of the officer involved in the crash. The incident is currently under investigation and being presented in court. One cyclist involved is pursuing a civil case.
