(KRON) It was one of the worst collisions in a residential neighborhood ever seen by San Leandro Police investigators.

San Leandro Police updated KRON4 News on Friday after two elderly people were seriously injured when a car fleeing a shootout crashed head on into their vehicle at 70 to 80 miles an hour.

On Thursday Officers responded around 12:30 p.m. to reports of a shootout between people in two cars in the area of MacArthur Boulevard and Interstate Interstate 580 in San Leandro.

One of the cars, a Nissan Altima, ended up in the 300 block of Dowling Boulevard, where it crashed head-on into a Toyota Prius with the two elderly people inside.
