Final update 11:45 a.m.: SF Appeal has MTA’s statement, which clarifies that both the bus driver and the driver of the truck suffered injuries that sent them to the hospital. Five passengers were also sent to the hospital, and two were treated on the scene, as originally reported.
Update 9:20 a.m.: The Examiner and NBC both say that the bus driver was among the injured. Consensus forming around that report, we’d say.
Update 8:01 a.m.: CBS 5 reports that the bus driver was among the injured. ABC 7 reports that the “driver” who was injured wasn’t the bus driver, but the driver of the truck. We’ll try to sort that out. Still, six bus passengers were sent to the hospital, and two passengers were treated at the scene.
Original post: SF Appeal and others are reporting an early morning crash involving a 19-Polk bus and a truck near 18th and De Haro (Potrero Hill neighborhood).
More details as they emerge.
Very scary. There are news trucks lined up on the corner, and I think the bus might have been there earlier, can’t say for sure (I was just passing by).
