Seven people were injured Monday when a truck crashed into two pedestrians and a car with a family of five inside in San Francisco, NBC Bay Area reported.
The San Francisco Police Department said the driver of the truck ran a red light at the intersection of 21st Ave and Geary Street and lost control of the vehicle, hitting two pedestrians, a parked car, and another car with a family inside, according to ABC’s local affiliate in the area.
Two of the injured were elderly people, and one had life-threatening injuries, while the other had serious injuries, the San Francisco Fire Department said. Officials told NBC that the elderly pedestrians were taken to a trauma center for treatment.
The family of five had minor injuries and were evaluated at the scene of the collision.
Officials arrested the truck driver and were waiting for a translator because he only speaks Cantonese, according to ABC7 News. A red alert was initiated in the surrounding area.
Police spokeswoman Grace Gatpandan told Mercury News there are no indications at this time that the incident was a terrorist attack, and the driver did not appear to be intoxicated or on drugs.
