Muni bus hits, injures pedestrian on Market Street

A Muni bus struck and injured a pedestrian on Market Street early this morning, according to police. This appeared to be Muni's first pedestrian accident since four others were struck during a two-week span in August.

Today's accident occured at 5:50 a.m. on Market near Sixth Street, said San Francisco Police Lt. Mike Cleary. The pedestrian was taken to the hospital with minor injuries, he added.

On Aug. 14, 83-year-old Marina Vafiadis was hit and killed by a 28-line bus as she crossed Park Presidio at Balboa Street. On Aug. 17, a 40-year-oldwoman was hit and injured at 22nd Avenue and California Street.

Forty seven-year-old John O’Neill was hit and killed by a J-Church train near Glen Park station Aug. 23, and on Aug. 28 a T-Third train hit a man crossing against the light at Third Street and Williams Avenue.

Five people have been killed by Muni vehicles in 2007.
