January 6, 2010 - Bus, Truck Collide in San Francisco

Seven people were hurt Tuesday when a city bus and pickup truck crashed in a four-way-stop intersection in San Francisco, authorities said.

The collision occurred just after midnight in the Potrero Hill neighborhood, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and police were trying to determine which driver was responsible for the crash in an intersection where all vehicles are required to stop.

Mindy Talmage, a spokeswoman for the fire department, said the truck driver, whose identity was not released, suffered serious injuries, while the bus driver and five of his passengers were moderately hurt.

Pete Pon, the driver of the bus, has been working for the transit agency for more than 30 years, said Judson True, a transportation agency spokesman. He said Pon will be tested for drugs and alcohol, standard procedure when drivers have been involved in crashes, and has been suspended from driving.
