Pedestrian killed in crash with UCSF shuttle bus

A pedestrian was killed Wednesday afternoon after being struck by a University of California, San Francisco shuttle bus at Geary Boulevard and Leavenworth.

The intersection, according to San Francisco Police, remains closed as of 3 p.m.

Around 12:30 p.m., police began receiving 911 emergency response calls of a pedestrian being hit by a shuttle bus, according to police Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

The shuttle bus, was reportedly traveling north on Leavenworth attempting to make a left turn on to Geary, Andraychak said, when it allegedly struck the pedestrian in the crosswalk.

The victim, identified as a 65-year-old woman, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Andraychak said it does not appear that alcohol or other intoxication is a factor in the incident.

He said the driver is cooperating with police. No other injuries, including the passengers on the UCSF shuttle bus, were reported.

Several Muni lines are being rerouted around the closed intersection including the 27-Bryant, 31-Balboa and the 38-Geary buses.
