Car Crashes into San Francisco's Comstock Saloon

A car crashed into Comstock Saloon, a popular bar in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. Around 1:45 p.m., a dark red BMW sedan plowed through the double doors of the saloon, located at 155 Columbus Avenue. The vehicle came to a stop after it hit the bar. Two patrons at the bar were taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries that were not considered life-threatening. The driver suffered minor injuries and cooperated with police.

According to investigators, the driver, whose name has not been released, was driving south on Columbus Avenue when he lost control of his car and slammed into the building. The car fit through the saloon’s double doors, striking several bar stools and clipping the bar before coming to a stop in the middle of the saloon. Fire department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge told reporters that there appears to be no structural damage to the building. However, Jonny Raglin, Comstock Saloon managing partner, noted the establishment will be closed indefinitely as they rebuild the bar, which was an antique built in 1907.

The driver was later arrested at the scene for an outstanding warrant for a sale of marijuana charge from Sacramento County.

The crash occurred just after the lunch rush. Raglin said, “All I can say is it’s a miracle no one was killed.”
