2 Women, Dog Killed After Vehicle Crashes Into Fence, Plunges Down Cliff

Two women and a dog were killed in a car accident after their SUV crashed into a fence and plunged down a 200 feet cliff in Potrero hill, California, on Tuesday night. A man who was also inside the vehicle was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The incident occurred around 7:30​ p.m. Tuesday night when a silver Nissan SUV crashed through a fence at a T intersection of 25th and Dakota streets before landing on a parking lot used for commuter buses 200 feet below a cliff.

One of the women, later identified as 28-year-old Angelique Starks, hailing from San Francisco, was declared dead at the scene. The identity of the other victim, who was rushed to the hospital but was later pronounced dead, is still unknown.

A dog in the vehicle, believed to be their pet, was ejected out of the crashed car. It was also pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile, a 911 caller misguided the dispatchers by providing incorrect information. According to the police, the caller reported about the accident saying the vehicle crashed on Interstate Highway 280 which is several blocks away from the actual crash site.

The cause of the crash was not known. The police were investigating the crash.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to call the Police Department’s 24-hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or text a tip to TIP411 with SFPD at the beginning of the text. Anyone who calls or texts may stay anonymous.
