How did the bus end up on the sidewalk Thursday morning? From SFMTAs spokeperson Paul Rose:

The operator lost control of his vehicle and jumped the curb. Four people were taken to the hospital with what appeared to be minor injuries. The SFMTA and SFPD are investigating to determine the specific cause of the accident. The operator has been placed on non-driving status per standard procedure pending completion of the investigation.

We hope no one was injured. And also, WTF? We’ve asked the SFMTA for the latest and will update you as soon as we find out.
