Policeman Shoots Woman Who Allegedly Tried to Run Him Over

Categories: Crime

The above video is the aftermath of a scary situation on Seventh and Folsom at about 5 p.m. when a police officer shot and wounded a woman he says raced her car toward him.

The female driver reportedly hit several cars while driving down Folsom Street. The police officer fired a shot through the windshield when she refused to stop. Her condition is unknown, though police spokeswoman Lieutenant Lyn Tomioka told SF Weekly the driver is expected to pull through; "Her injuries didn't seem life-threatening." 

What prompted this incident and the sobriety of the driver have not yet been determined.
