Car crashes with nine dogs inside
Three dogs went missing and two people, including a child, were hospitalized Thursday afternoon when the vehicle they were all in went down a steep hill and crashed in San Francisco’s Parkside neighborhood, according to fire officials.
At about 3:15 p.m., fire officials learned that a vehicle rolled down a hill, struck parked cars and then crashed into a building near 26th Avenue and Santiago Street, San Francisco Fire Department spokesman Jonathan Baxter said.
A woman and a child inside the vehicle were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
There were a total of nine dogs in the vehicle at the time.
After the crash, three dogs jumped out of the vehicle and ran off.
The six remaining dogs were shaken up, but otherwise uninjured, according to Baxter.
Firefighters comforted the dogs and, after making several phone calls, were able to reunite them with their owners.
A Good Samaritan was also able to locate one of the three missing dogs, bringing the total number of missing dogs to just two.
The building into which the vehicle crashed sustained some damage, however, no one inside was injured, Baxter said.
