A car ran a red light at Oak and Octavia last night, resulting in a collision that sent three people to the hospital.

Police tell us that some time around 9:30pm, a blue 2-door Infiniti traveling north on Octavia ran a red light and broadsided a white van that was traveling east on Oak Street. The van ended up on its side, while the Infiniti suffered significant damage as well.  

Three people were transported to San Francisco General Hospital with complaints of pain; the driver of the Infiniti was cited for running a red light.

Images from the scene soon appeared on Twitter:

Oak and Octavia is frequently cited as one of the most dangerous intersections in the city. Three years ago it was the site of a fatal collision in which a car-carrying trailer collided with a UCSF van. 

Just last month, Supervisor London Breed told us that a reconfiguration of the intersection is currently being studied. The results of that study are scheduled to be shared in September.
