Eight hospitalized after car hits paratransit bus

A paratransit van was broadsided in Bernal Heights on Monday morning, sending eight people to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

The van was turning left onto Alemany Boulevard off Crescent Avenue around 8:30 a.m. when a Honda broadsided it, knocking it over onto an unoccupied, parked car, said police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza.

Seven people in the van were taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons, as well as the driver of the Honda, Esparza said.

Preliminary reports indicate there were no major injuries.

Esparza said drugs or alcohol did not appear to be a factor.
