Parolee in late-night accident arrested for gun 

A 27-year-old man who evaded police during a traffic stop but injured himself and three others when he crashed two blocks later was booked Wednesday for carrying a loaded firearm, among other charges.

San Francisco resident Anthony Hunter drove a Chevrolet Caprice with two other passengers through a red light at Fifth and Harrison streets around 11:15 p.m. Tuesday to evade police, but T-boned an SUV, according to police.

Officers had stopped the Caprice for an alleged mechanical issue, but when they approached it at Fifth and Mission streets, Hunter took off and ran two red lights, police said.

A woman in her 40s, who was driving the SUV, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital after complaining of pain.

Hunter fractured some bones and was taken to a hospital along with 28-year-old Lashon Andrews, who also was complaining of pain.

Hunter was also booked for violating parole and Andrews was booked for possessing narcotics.

Angelita Williams, 28, the owner of the Caprice, was treated for wounds at the scene and also cited for a traffic violation, police Officer Samson Chan said.
