Three police officers were hospitalized with minor injuries after an early morning car crash into a light pole in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood while responding to a situation in the Mission, a police sergeant said.
The officers were in an unmarked vehicle and responding to a call about a man with a knife at 24th and York streets around 1:42 a.m. They were traveling south on Potrero Avenue when their blue Ford sedan struck a light pole at the southeast side of the 19th Street intersection, said Sgt. Michael Andraychak.
The three uniformed men were taken to the hospital by ambulance with injuries not considered life-threatening, Andraychak said.
