A Muni bus shattered glass after ramming into a street pole smashing through a window on Stanyan and Frederick streets, earlier today.
The 71 bus line was en route, outbound, when the driver turned and hit the pole. Officer Greer, of the Park Station Police District, explains at the scene that the transit has its own investigators for Muni involved accidents.
“I know a bus hit the pole,” says Officer Greer. “We are here just helping with traffic.”
Muni investigator at the scene refused to comment on the matter.
No one around was witness to the accident, but nearby business American Cyclery was just next door where everything could be heard.
“It was pretty minor, no one got hurt,” says shop worker Tyson Mitchell. “Just a bang and glass!”
The details of the accident are currently unavailable; however, PG&E have been called to the scene to reconstruct the pole, and it should be cleared this evening, according to police.
