The intersection of Market, Sansome and Sutter is closed to traffic after a taxi cab collided with pedestrians on the sidewalk, taking out a JCDecaux newsstand.

Via Twitter, the SFFD reports that three adults have suffered critical injuries.

SFPD spokesperson Officer Grace Gatpandan says the collision occurred at 3:17pm, and the fire department is on the scene. While she confirmed the newsstand had been struck, she couldn't comment on the nature or extent of any injuries. 

The SFFD is asking locals to steer clear of the intersection.
