Motorcyclist injured in crash with Muni bus

A motorcyclist was injured in a collision with a San Francisco Municipal Railway bus in the Mission District Tuesday afternoon, according to police.

The collision occurred around 3:30 p.m. when the motorcyclist, a 42-year-old man, lost control of his bike while riding south on Mission Street at what police described as a “high rate of speed.”

The motorcyclist was ejected from his bike, which struck the front end of a 14-Mission Muni bus that was stopped at 22nd and Mission streets to pick up passengers.

The motorcyclist lost consciousness at the scene and was taken to a hospital with a broken clavicle, where he was treated and later released.

No bus passengers were injured. The collision did not cause any damage to the bus or delays on Muni routes, according to Muni spokesman Paul Rose.crashMission districtMotorcyclistMunitraffic collisionTransit
