We expected Giants fans to take to the streets and riot after the big World Series win last night. We never, however, expected them to get run over in the process. Warning, this video is graphic, depressing, and wholly unsafe for consumption at your place of business:
At about 11:49pm I started filming this "celebration" bon-fire (And other random acts of civil disobedience) in the middle of the intersection when (at the 2:05 mark) suddenly I heard screaming and the sound of people's bodies being hit by metal as the engine of a car roars.
I turned around just in time to see headlights and a fender speeding right towards me, I moved quickly then watched in horror as it drove straight through the crowd of people striking many of them and dragging some right through the fire itself! At least two were taken to the hospital that I'm aware of, I just barely missed being hit myself.
Then before the car even stops, the crowd goes completely ape shit on it and the driver, smashing them up until a wave of cops storm down Mission St. and shut down the entire intersection.
If he was smart, he would have used Foursquare to avoid areas where rioters were gathering. And, you know, not have run people over. This is shitty
