UPDATE: 10 injured in crash at Chinatown bus stop

UPDATE, 5:30 p.m.: Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital officials say they are treating five patients from this afternoon’s crash at a Chinatown bus stop,
four of whom are listed in serious condition.

Fire officials said 10 people, including two in critical condition and five in total with major injuries, were transported to area hospitals following the crash on Stockton Street between Sacramento and Clay streets reported at 12:37 p.m.

Police Officer Robert Rueca said that the driver of a gray sedan traveling north on Stockton Street struck two other vehicles, one of them unoccupied, before crashing into a Muni bus shelter midblock.

Those transported included the driver in the gray sedan and the driver in one of the vehicles struck, as well as a number of people who had been waiting at the bus stop. It was unclear this afternoon whether there was a passenger in either vehicle.

Fire Battalion Chief Paul Crawford said injuries among those struck included a number of broken legs and other broken bones as well as head and back injuries.

Patients were taken to several different area hospitals. Of the five taken to San Francisco General Hospital, four were women and one was a man, hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said. Their ages ranged from the mid-30s to the 80s.

Four were listed in serious condition while a fifth did not have a listed condition yet, probably because they were still being evaluated, Andrew said.

No arrest was reported this afternoon and police indicated the driver was cooperating with investigators. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
