Two people suffered life-threatening injuries when a car driven by a driver believed to be impaired hit pedestrians Wednesday afternoon in San Francisco’s Mission District, police said.
A Toyota Prius turned north onto Mission Street from 23rd Street and struck the two pedestrians about 4:20 p.m.
The vehicle then went up on a sidewalk and hit a bus and a person getting off the bus. That person was treated at the scene and released, police said.
