2 in life-threatening condition after head-on SoMa collision

Two people are in life-threatening condition after a head-on collision early this morning in SoMa. 

According to police, the collision between a sedan and a pickup truck occurred at approximately 7:21 a.m. at the intersection of 10th and Harrison streets, 

"The preliminary investigation indicates that one of the vehicles was traveling the wrong way on a one-way street," said SFPD spokesperson Sergeant Michael Andraychak. It's unclear which of the drivers was at fault.

The three victims were hospitalized, and police issued an avoid-the-area warning until the wreckage was cleared. 

Andraychak said the investigation is still evolving, and SFPD's Traffic Collision Investigation Unit will be looking into it.

The intersection at 10th and Harrison streets is identified as a high-injury corridor under the city's Vision Zero plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024. While the plan is often considered in light of pedestrian and cyclist fatalities, it also aims to end deaths in vehicle-on-vehicle collisions as well. 

Anyone who has information about this crash is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.
