Crash Splits Car in 2 Pieces, Injures 4 People in San Francisco's Bayview Neighborhood

Four people were hurt when a car split in two during a 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 off the hydrant, causing water to shoot into the air, and left the car in two separate pieces.

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.
