Man Run Over at Chevron Station in Richmond District This Morning

Posted By on Thu, May 29, 2014 at 7:42 AM

A puzzling incident took place at a San Francisco gas station this morning where a man either laid down or fell behind a vehicle and was run over. According to KTVU, the incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. when a driver pulled into a Chevron station to fix a flat tire. The driver and passenger began "interacting" with another man who had been hanging around the gas station. What happened next is a somewhat sketchy.

According to the news station, the man they had been interacting with suddenly collapsed, however, other news reports say the man "laid down" behind the vehicle. One of the two men ran inside to ask the gas clerk to call 911.

The driver, presumably attempting to dodge police, got in the car and tried to drive away, running over the victim on the ground.

"He was run over by the vehicle," Sgt. Chris Breen told KTVU. "The pedestrian was trapped under the vehicle for five minutes possibly as long as 10 minutes. "

Firefighters arrived at the scene to extract the pinned man; he was taken to a local hospital with a critical head wound. The driver, who was reportedly confrontational with police, was taken into custody with blood alcohol tests pending.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
