Woman struck by Muni bus on Market Street

A woman was hit by a city bus Monday morning while crossing the street in downtown San Francisco and later transported to the hospital with a bleeding head injury.

The woman was struck around 11:20 a.m.by an eastbound 5-Fulton Muni bus on Market Street just before Fourth Street.

Siobhan O’Connor, a witness and San Francisco health service system employee, said “I hope she lives.”

“She was jaywalking, but he was traveling too fast,” O’Connor said.

“It appears the pedestrian stepped in front of the bus entering the bus zone,” said Paul Rose, a spokesperson for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

After being struck by the bus, the woman was laying in the gutter and appeared to have large gash on her forehead from the incident.

The woman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Rose.

The San Francisco Police Department is investigating, and is currently working to obtain video footage from the Muni bus involved to fully investigate the collision, police said.
