Two women and a dog were killed in Potrero Hill on Tuesday night, after their Nissan SUV went through a T intersection and over a cliff. A man who was also inside the vehicle is hospitalized. 

The incident occurred around 7:20 p.m. at the intersection of 25th and Dakota streets (pictured above), where a stop sign faces a hurricane fence at the top of a precipitous drop.

Police say the vehicle drove across the intersection and through the fencing. After falling down the cliff, it landed in a parking lot used for commuter buses, according to images of the aftermath.

The SUV's driver, 28-year-old San Francisco resident Angelique Starks, was ejected from the vehicle and declared dead at the scene, along with the dog. A female passenger, whose identity has not been shared with press, was also ejected, and died after being transported to the hospital.

The male passenger, who remained in the vehicle as it fell, is hospitalized in non-life-threatening condition.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation.
