A driver who may have been under the influence struck two pedestrians and a number of other vehicles last night before fleeing the scene, police have reported.

The incident occurred around 9:48pm when a 39-year-old male driver collided with multiple vehicles on the 100 block of Duboce Street then fled, injuring a 42-year-old man who was in the area.

Moments later, the suspect struck a 33-year-old man before driving into a Muni shelter and coming to a stop near the corner of Market and Octavia streets. Police arrested the suspect at the scene.

Both victims were transported to a hospital for treatment, but the second victim suffered life-threatening injuries. There's no word on his condition at the current time.
