The accident happened around 12:30 am on the northbound side of the 101 Freeway near Kastania Road. 54 year old Douglas Stevenson and his 58 year old female passenger were speeding on the 101 Freeway in a 1996 Volvo when he lost control of the car and crashed off the road into a ditch.
Douglas Stevenson fled the car immediately after the crash, but was located on the Kastania Road overpass by local authorities. Both Stevenson and his passenger were rushed to a hospital, where the female passenger informed police that Douglas Stevenson had forced her into his car outside of a homeless shelter in San Francisco. Douglas Stevenson was then arrested for DUI and kidnapping, and the investigation is ongoing.
