Person in wheelchair struck by Muni bus

A person in a wheelchair was hit by a 28-19th Avenue Muni bus Tuesday morning, according to transit officials.

Officials were unable to share details of the identity of the person in the wheelchair, who was hit at about 6:54 a.m. at Beach and Stockton streets, according to Paul Rose, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

Beach and Stockton streets are not the usual route of the 28-line, Rose confirmed, but “it was headed out from the yard to its first stop” of the day.

Rose said the person was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”

Jonathan Baxter, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Fire Department, confirmed the person in the wheelchair was transported to the hospital as a “code 2,” which is a non-emergency transport.

The operator is now in non-driving status pending a full investigation, said Rose. Transit
