The Flint Intersection is a major highway/road intersection connecting the main road servicing southern Los Santos and Flint County with the major highway servicing Los Santos and San Fierro, running through Flint County and Whetstone. The intersection is located just west of the Richman district of Los Santos, and north of the Los Santos Inlet. The area also includes a trailer park where a Monster Truck can usually be found.


The intersection is very limited and can be classed as "incomplete". There are only two loops, serving cars coming from the west (Angel Pine and west San Fierro) going to the north, and those coming from the south (Los Santos) going to the west. There are no roads serving any other directions.

The intersection resembles a cloverleaf intersection with the edge roads and two loops removed.

The "Suicidal Photographer"

The photographer in a kneeling position.

Across the road to the south of the trailer park, a random pedestrian will often be seen shooting photographs of the Los Santos skyline across the inlet. This involves some detailed animation: the pedestrian is shown both standing erect and kneeling, holding a camera up to their face, clicking the shutter (which is heard), and a camera flash is also seen. If the player observes the pedestrian for a while, eventually they will stop taking photos, sometimes will utter a random phrase or greeting to Carl, and then walk away right into the water, where the photographer drowns.

Contrary to common belief, the suicidal photographer is not an easter egg but actually a programming error. Pedestrians in the game usually follow predetermined paths, and the lack of one nearby causes this one to walk off to wherever they are facing; in this case, the water.

Police officers on foot in this area are also subject to this glitch if they're not pursuing Carl anymore.


Stationary Vehicles


  • Unlike the other rural areas in San Andreas, the intersection is defined to make desert pedestrians and vehicles appear instead of rural ones, which explains the Roadtrain appearing there as part of the traffic system, while the Linerunner does not appear at all.
