A hit-and-run driver plowed into three pedestrians, critically injuring two, in San Francisco’s Mission District on Wednesday, officials said.

The driver of a burgundy Toyota Prius struck a man in the crosswalk at 23rd and Mission streets, pinning him against the side of a northbound Muni 14R bus, according to police Sgt. Frank Harrell.

The car then leaped onto the Mission Street sidewalk and struck two passengers — a man and a woman — who were getting off the bus. The car continued north on the east sidewalk “at a very high rate of speed,” Harrell said.

The pedestrian and the male bus passenger sustained life-threatening injuries and were in surgery at San Francisco General Hospital. The men, who were not identified, were 49 and 34 years old. The woman was treated at the scene and released.

The driver of the Prius, a man estimated to be in his 50s, and a passenger in the car initially fled the scene but came back and were detained, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak, a San Francisco police spokesman.

Officers were questioning the driver at the scene and administering sobriety tests.

Harrell said the driver was “displaying signs of alcohol or drug impairment.”

The horrific accident disrupted the busy Mission District thoroughfare, shutting down traffic and forcing Muni to reroute its Mission Street lines onto Valencia Street. Vendors, shoppers, restaurateurs and passersby stood behind yellow police tape, taking in the scene and watching police question the driver, who was seated inside a Fire Department ambulance.

Police and paramedics closed off the chaotic scene on Mission Street between 22nd and 24th streets while onlookers gathered.

“There’s always something like this happening in the Mission,” said Germaine Ellis, who delivers restaurant meals by bicycle and who said he was forced to make a detour around the police tape to complete his deliveries. “It’s never quiet around here.”

Anyone with information was asked to call police at 415-575-4444.
