Two young men in a small black sedan lost control of their car and slammed into Casa Guadalupe, on Mission Street near 26th, sometime after 10 p.m. on Wednesday. The men immediately jumped out of the vehicle and ran.
A video of the accident taken by security cameras at the store showed a woman who was standing at the bus stop react quickly, jumping around a nearby pole — a decision that may have saved her life as the car rammed against the other side of the pole.
The video shows debris flying across both streets, and it appears that the debris cut the woman’s hand.
The auto’s passengers fled immediately, one running into Lilac Alley and the other up Mission Street. Both headed north toward 25th Street.
It’s not clear if they were intoxicated, but there was alcohol in the vehicle. They appeared to be between 18 and 20 years old.
Both suspects were arrested. One appeared to have been injured in the accident and could not run as fast as his partner.
There were many witnesses, which helped police quickly identify the suspects.
