Accident on Sneath Lane at National; South City friend involved

South San Francisco, CA June 30, 2013flipacars car accident

A bit after 6pm last evening Alan Lopez and Pat Murray alerted us to an accident up on Sneath Lane. Lopez posted, ‘What’s going on in Sneath Lane? Police Department has the whole street shut down and it’s all chaos.” A bit later Murray posted ‘Does anyone know what’s going on in San Bruno on Sneath Lane? My son said there are many emergency vehicles there.’

Fire dispatch had shown a full response of emergency services out of San Bruno plus engine 63 out of South San Francisco’s Arroyo Drive station. The location they gave was Sneath Lane and National.

Today Christopher Carey shared with us it was his brother and friends that were involved in this accident as they were on their way home from some other friends home. “Everyone is OK though”, Carey added.

“My brother Joe Carey and a couple friends were leaving one of his friend’s houses near Cherry Ave. on route down Sneath towards El Camino Real to bring my brother home in Brentwood neighborhood of South City. While they were crossing a green light on the way down to ECR they were blindsided by a truck that was being chased by police. It came out of nowhere. All were taken to SF General and luckily have minor injuries, the car was smashed and totaled. Responding crews said the car they were in saved their live, any smaller car could’ve been worse. My brother and co. Have to give statements to SBPD in next day or so. From what he told me it’s all hazy it happened so quick and his glasses got broken so he really couldn’t see during the aftermath. Please keep these young men in your thoughts. Scary situation but all is well now. All the guys are good kids and I’m just glad they made it out of that wreck safely.”

Everything South City seconds that, we are glad there are no major injuries and put a shout out to Joe and his buddies for a quick and complete healing.

    I was involved in the accident on Sneath last night,in the front passenger side of the vehicle that was struck.As my brother said,four of my buddies and I were traveling southbound on Sneath towards El Camino and as were passing through the green light on the intersection of National Ave,we were struck from our right by a black Ford truck.The truck was being tailed by 2 undercover gang task force police cars and the 2 passengers were noticeably intoxicated.Police,firefighters,and medical services were immediately and promptly on the scene to help us out.

    After being transported to the hospital,we were all treated for non serious injuries and able to return last night.I was treated for a sprained thumb and neck pain,3 of my friends including the driver were treated for bruising,back,chest,and head pain,and my other friend was treated for head pain and had to receive stitches in his mouth due to bleeding that was induced by his head hitting something in the car.

    Thankfully all 5 of us were wearing seat belts and the air bags all deployed. We were all able to exit the vehicle on our own.

    Unfortunately my friends car is totaled, but we are very thankful that there were no serious or fatal injuries.Multiple officers even told us that after looking at the damaged car,there is no way that you’d expect 5 people to have been able to walk out of it on their own.If it was an older car and not a newer model,we definitely would not have been as lucky.

    On behalf of my friends and as a South City resident,I would like to thank everybody on this board and ESC for their thoughts and prayers during this scary time! We are all very thankful and blessed to still be healthy and safe and all of your well wishes definitely helped us through this immediate aftermath.

    Please everybody be safe and aware on the roads: As this situation showed us,you never know what to expect on the road and everything can change in a split second!

    Thanks to you all again for your concern and support!

    Joseph Carey
