Two men were killed in a fiery head-on crash early Sunday as the driver of a stolen vehicle tried to evade police by heading into oncoming freeway traffic, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman.

An off-duty San Francisco police sergeant began following a 1997 Volkswagen Jetta at about 5:45 a.m. because it was swerving and driving erratically on Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, said CHP officer Shawn Chase.
