Four people were hurt when a car split in two during a violent crash in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood early Thursday morning, according to police.
The wreck happened around 1:15 a.m. in the area of Carroll Avenue and 3rd Street, police said.
All four victims suffered non life-threatening injuries, according to police. They were transported to the hospital.
Preliminary information indicates the car slammed into a fire hydrant, according to police. The impact sheared the hydrant, causing water to shoot into the air and flood the area.
Police said speed appears to have played a role in the crash, but they have yet to officially determine a cause. An investigation is ongoing.
