MUNI Bus Involved in San Francisco Accident on Lombard Street and Fillmore Street
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 19, 2022) – Saturday morning, a multi-vehicle crash on Lombard Street and Fillmore Street led to multiple injuries.
The incident happened at about 11:03 a.m. on Lombard Street and Fillmore Street. According to reports, the crash involved a MUNI bus, multiple vehicles, and pedestrians.
As a result, responders took six people to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Meanwhile, officers detained the suspected driver.
According to witness Jaime Schilling, the white SUV came barreling down the street through a red light. “He was going 60-80 mph, blaring his horn and weaving through traffic,” Schilling said. Then, the driver tried to weave around traffic, lost control, and went over the median and into the oncoming traffic lanes.
As a result, multiple firefighters and emergency medical personnel responded to the scene. Also, the crash stalled traffic on Lombard Street.
