Woman struck by Muni bus dies; investigation continues

A woman who crossed against a red light Friday and was struck by a Muni bus passed away, according to the police.

Wan Wy, a 60-year-old San Francisco resident, died from the injuries she suffered on Sunday, according to the San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office. The specifics of her injury were unknown.

On Friday at 3:32 p.m. Wy was crossing the intersection of Kearny and Jackson streets against a red light when the northbound 15-Third Street Muni bus struck her, San Francisco police Officer Maria Oropeza said. The woman was transported to San Francisco General Hospital where she passed away. The driver of the bus was not cited, according to Oropeza, and the investigation is ongoing.

Wy’s death comes on the heels of another Muni-related accident Wednesday, when a woman crossing the intersection of Market and Powell streets against a red light was also struck by a Muni bus. The woman suffered two broken legs, but Oropeza said an update on her condition was not available.

Muni spokesman Alan Siegal said he could not comment on the cases because both are part of an ongoing police investigation.
