Three people were injured – one woman’s were deemed life-threatening – Friday when a pickup truck struck pedestrians in the East Village.

The crash was reported just before 1 p.m. at 16th and F streets, according to the San Diego Police Department.

Officers said a 36-year-old man was driving a Ford F-150 pickup truck west on F Street and hit the back of an Audi A3.

After the Audi driver, 50, pulled over, his car was rear-ended again and turned south onto 16th Street.

The Ford driver continued onto 16th Street and struck two pedestrians – a 41-year-old woman and a 44-year old man, who were on the west sidewalk, police said.

Paramedics transported the Ford driver and two pedestrians to a hospital. According to SDPD, the female pedestrian suffered “significant neurological damage,” and her condition “is life-threatening.”

The male pedestrian suffered an open fracture on the lower part of his left leg, police said.

According to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department,, one person wound up pinned under the pickup truck. It was unclear if the Audi driver suffered any injury.
