Muni accident sends passenger to hospital

A bus passenger was transported to a local hospital following a collision involving a Muni bus and a vehicle in The City's Mission district Monday morning.

The injured person was on the 27-Bryant bus, which collided with a car on the corner of 23rd and Bryant streets just after 9 a.m., according to Kristen Holland, spokeswoman for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

Holland said she did not know the extent of the injuries of the passenger, who was transferred to San Francisco General Hospital following the accident and has not been identified. No one in the vehicle involved in the accident was taken to the hospital, according to Holland.

The bus, which was headed outbound at the time of the accident, sustained minimal damage in the collision. There were no service delays following the incident, which is under investigation by the San Francisco Police Department.

The operator of the bus was placed on administrative leave and tested for drugs and alcohol, both standard department procedures, Holland said.

Monday's collision follows three accidents in a six-day span involving Muni vehicles.

On Aug. 21, a woman driving a Dodge Magnum took an illegal left turn and collided with a T-Third light rail line on Third Street, injuring 10 people.

The day before, a pedestrian sustained life-threatening injuries after being struck by a N-Judah train on Judah Street and 30th Avenue, and Aug. 15 a woman was hit by the 44-O'Shaughnessy, which left her with serious injuries.
