This crash is similar to one you may see in a Hollywood film.
On a dead-end street in Dolores Heights, San Francisco, an automobile plowed through a guardrail, flew down an embankment, felled a tree, and came to rest upside down. On Saturday, it occurred at 19th and Sanchez Streets around 7:20 p.m.
KPIX received a neighbor’s account of the scene.
“A woman was dragging out a man who was covered in blood and was wearing a full-face mask and all-black clothing. She was screaming at them, wearing all black, with red hair, saying, “We have 3 minutes until the police arrive, hurry up!” claimed Michael Perez, a neighbor. “Just leave him, leave him!” they yelled as there was still another man trapped inside the vehicle.
Everyone in the automobile fled the scene, according to San Francisco police, and officers have not been able to find them yet.
Perez was one of several neighbors who sprinted over to aid the people inside the wrecked car.
“We observed what was occurring. They were all bleeding, there were booze bottles flowing out of their car, and it was obvious they were up to no good, according to Perez. “By the way they were dressed, overflowing out of their automobile, you could know they were vandals. They declined our assistance. ‘Don’t touch me,’ she commanded.
Giorgi Kvirkvia heard the noise when he was working on a car outside his garage. A man who had just been carjacked was one of the people he spoke to as he hurried over to the incident.
He claimed that, “according to him, they essentially kicked him out of his car — a few minutes earlier — somewhere down the block.” “He kind of resisted them, and in the end, I suppose they used a gun to knock him in the head. What he said was that. I noticed that his shirt had been torn when they were fighting.
According to Kvirkvia, police also discovered a gun at the site.
I think it’s a terrific illustration of how San Francisco’s lawlessness affects the actual residents and neighbors who live in the city. I thus hope that this serves as a small wakeup call to our leaders, reminding them that we need to prosecute crimes and hire more police officers.
When he heard the crash, Dave, who wouldn’t reveal his last name, was reading his daughter a goodnight tale.
“Later, I discovered that I had passed straight by two of the perpetrators—or, whatever you want to call them, two of the victims. I descended the stairs as they ascended them, but due to the commotion, nobody really noticed,” he stated.
Perez said that he had painted a mural on the stairs to improve the area and discourage graffiti.
“I might have been the culprit very easily. Looking over the scene, he added, “I still have paint on my hands from the last time I painted this.
Fortunately, no onlookers were hurt.
“I’m afraid. “I don’t want this to be happening in my neighborhood, much less San Francisco, where I live a few houses away,” Perez added.

The white four-door sedan flips after flying over the hill’s summit, uprooting a tree and slamming into a parked vehicle before landing on its roof. One of the passengers in the automobile is assisted in exiting by a witness who runs up to the car and prys open one of the doors.
Several people can be seen getting out of the car. A few minutes later, a San Francisco Fire Department unit comes, and none of them are still present.
The automobile is seen crashing through the railing at the top of the stairs where Cumberland dead ends in a second released video.
