SFPD Officer, Pedestrian Injured in Separate Collisions

San Francisco police responded to two collisions on city streets within 10 minutes of each other this morning, including one in the Tenderloin that injured a police motorcycle officer.

The officer was involved in a collision with a vehicle near Leavenworth Street and Golden Gate Avenue at 7:32 a.m., according to the San Francisco Fire Department and police.

The officer was transported to a hospital as a precaution, but was listed in stable condition, a fire department official said.

A second collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian occurred only 10 minutes earlier at 7:22 a.m. at Sixth and Stevenson streets in the South of Market area, according to fire officials.

The pedestrian appears to have been struck by a Porsche and there were reports from the scene of an angry crowd surrounding the car after the collision, a fire official said.

Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza described the pedestrian’s injuries in that collision as life-threatening.
