SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A police chase in San Francisco on Saturday night ended with a fiery crash that is believed to have killed three people, KPIX-TV reported.
The crash took place about 10 p.m. Saturday at Brannan and Ninth streets.
The incident started with a police chase at 5th and Bryant streets, California Highway Patrol spokesman Vu Williams told KPIX. A CHP officer started to follow a car and the car immediately started racing through red lights.
Police said they called off the pursuit, but the speeding car crashed into a taxi and burst into flames, the television station reported.
“The whole car burst into such intense flames – bang – nobody could survive,” witness Neal Taylor told KPIX.
KPIX and KGO-TV report that three people are believed dead.
