Man steals car, causes multi-vehicle accident in San Francisco

There are many contributing factors to car accidents, from distracted driving to texting while driving. Irresponsible behavior and operating a vehicle can have fatal consequences for those involved. In a city like San Francisco, busy roads can make driving even more dangerous. Even when you are driving responsibly, it is important to remember the risk of an auto accident and watch out for others who may not be obeying the law.

After stealing a vehicle, a 25-year-old man failed to stop at a light and caused four vehicles to collide. Additionally, two other cars and a pedestrian, who was hit by wreckage from the crash, were affected. Ultimately, five people suffered injuries due to the accident and one of the vehicles that was struck was overturned following the collision.

The incident, which occurred in Inner Richmond, caused the road to be shut down for hours. Authorities were going to arrest the man responsible for causing this accident for possessing a vehicle that had been stolen, according to a responding officer.

Car accidents can ruin lives in a number of ways. While most people are aware of the risk of injuries and loss of life, some don’t realize just how financially and legally devastating these crashes can be. In addition to hospital expenses, some families have a hard time paying funeral costs. The emotional and financial toll of car accidents can be very significant, so drivers should always try to be safe on the road. If you are struggling with any of these issues, talking to a legal professional could be a good idea.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
