For two days in a row, emergency teams responded to SUV turnovers resulting from collisions in the area around mid-Market and the Castro.

The first occurred shortly after 5 p.m. yesterday, when a Mazda SUV flipped with the driver and two passengers inside, both children.

None of the car's occupants were reported as seriously injured, and all three were pictured safe (below) immediately after the crash.

The area is normally a sleepy, tree-lined stretch of 15th Street heavily frequented by parkgoers, cyclists and pedestrians moving between the Castro and the Lower Haight.

Bystanders reported the SUV flipped after it collided with another vehicle, ending up upside down facing eastbound on Market Street. Neighbor Andrew Vik captured the crash:

The second collision occurred nearby shortly after 1:30 today, at the corner of Market and Gough, closing adjacent streets to traffic for a rescue and investigation.

Reports indicate that at least one person was stuck inside following the crash.

At press time, SFPD hasn't responded to queries about injuries or the extent of damage.
