Maybe it was last night's full moon, but there's been a spike in horrendous driving in the area over the past 12 hours.
It kicked off with a truck crashing into a funeral home
at 2254 Market Street around 12:30am, setting off a fiery blaze. The Castro Biscuit cites police as saying that the hood of the truck flew open and there was a "bang," causing the driver to lose control and crash into the building. Fortunately the fire was extinguished fairly quickly, and the driver and passenger were treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

Not long after that, just after 9am, Dan had the luck to witness another oddity

Finally, around that same time, Brett Gerry spotted the scene below, the aftermath of a Mini apparently hitting a tree at Haight and Scott:
Not the greatest morning on the streets of San Francisco. Pay attention and stay safe out there, folks.
