A piece of the overhead equipment on a Muni bus flew off and smashed right into the third floor window of a Financial District building last night, reports SF Appeal and Bay City News.

Whoa. What.

A bus was traveling nearby when a “shoe,” the piece of equipment that connects the vehicle to overhead wires, got caught in a guide wire, creating a spring action that sent the equipment flying into the building, [SFMTA spokesperson Paul] Rose said.

The projectile just missed the employees, according to the SF Appeal report, but no one was hurt.

Has this happened before? Rarely, Rose says. Head over to the SF Appeal for details.
