Woman Injured in Muni Accident

A woman was slightly injured when she was hit by the bumper of a 14 Mission Muni bus on South Van Ness Avenue between 20th and 21st streets Thursday afternoon.

The accident occurred around 5 p.m. as the bus traveled inbound on South Van Ness, according to Paul Rose, a spokesman for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The woman “made contact with the front bumper of the bus,” Rose said.

Her injury was not life-threatening, Rose said, and she was taken to San Francisco General Hospital.

The accident disrupted service on the 14-Mission line for about an hour and a half, Rose said.

  1. The woman was under the bus. I don’t call this slight contact. See the video on South Van Ness traffic on you tube.

  2. Look at MUNI speeds on South Van Ness and you will conclude that there is no way to slightly contacted mid block.

    • I agree with your comment. However, neither you nor I know whether or not this woman was trying to dodge the bus, so it’s rather hasty to blame Muni. After all, she was between 20th and 21st streets, not in a designated crosswalk. Unfortunately, this seems to happen quite often on South Van Ness.
