An alleged drunken driver who crashed head-on into a police car in San Francisco’s Mission District early Monday morning, injuring an officer, was identified by police today as 22-year-old Oliver Lorenzo-Lopez. Lorenzo-Lopez was arrested on suspicion of DUI causing injury, driving without a license and having an open container of alcohol in his car following the crash, which happened at 12:48 a.m. at Mission and 19th streets.
He was allegedly speeding west on 19th Street in a BMW 328i when he drove into oncoming traffic and struck the eastbound police car, police said. An officer complained of neck pain and was taken to a hospital. He was released later Monday, police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said.
