(by Sara Gaiser) – A suspect fleeing the scene of an apparent auto burglary in progress near Alamo Square struck and injured a San Francisco police officer and another suspect, according to police.

Officers spotted a possible auto break-in in progress near Hayes and Pierce streets at 11:51 a.m., Officer Giselle Linnane said.

As they responded, however, at least one suspect fled in a vehicle, striking a police officer and another suspect at the scene.

Both the officer and the suspect were taken to a hospital. Linnane said the officer is expected to survive, while the condition of the injured suspect was not immediately available.

Linnane said police may also have other suspects detained at the scene.
