Collision on Highway 101, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival service Friday

A no-injury collision occurred in the left lane on northbound U.S. Highway 101 just north of the Ninth Street offramp at 6:56 a.m. It blocked that lane and caused delays.

Muni lines 5-Fulton, 8X-Bayshore Express, 14-Mission and 29-Sunset had longer than typical wait times as of 6:40 a.m.

A no-injury collision involving a school bus and a minivan occurred at the intersection of Ortega Street and 20th Avenue at 8:02 a.m. There were 43 children on board the bus, said California Highway Patrol spokesman Mike Ferguson.

“At this time it looks like it was not the school bus driver’s fault,” Ferguson said, adding it occurred in a parking situation. “It was a very, very minor crash.”

A traffic hazard was reported on westbound Interstate 80 just west of the Seventh Street onramp at 8:35 a.m.

<p>Muni will provide additional service on the N-Judah and 5L-Fulton Limited lines from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. today for the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, a free three-day concert in Golden Gate Park.Bay Area NewsHardly Strictly Bluegrass FestivalMunitrafficTransittransportation
