A traffic collision between a MUNI bus and a motorcyclist near 21st and Mission streets on Tuesday sent the latter to the hospital in non-life-threatening condition. The 42-year-old motorist was traveling southbound on Mission Street at “a high rate of speed,” police report.

The man then lost control as he made a sudden maneuver, colliding with the front end of a bus that had pulled into a stop to unload passengers. The collision caused the driver to be ejected from the motorcycle, and he lost consciousness following the impact. While no Muni passengers were injured, the motorist was transported to the hospital, where he was treated for a broken clavicle but has since been released.

A witness to the incident tweeted about it and told Mission Local the motorcyclist collided with a taxi, not a bus, and that the taxi driver immediately departed after the collision. The motorcyclist, she said, seemed to have lost consciousness and then regained it before emergency workers transported him to the hospital.
