Girl hit by bus

A 10-year-old girl was hospitalized after being struck by a shuttle bus in
downtown San Francisco Wednesday afternoon, a police spokesman said.

The collision was reported near the corner of Market and Battery streets
just before 5 p.m. Wednesday, Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

The girl was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries not
considered life-threatening, Manfredi said.

The driver of the commercial shuttle bus stopped and cooperated with police,
who are continuing to investigate the incident.

This was the second injury of a pedestrian by a car in downtown San
Francisco Wednesday afternoon.

Earlier, a woman was struck by a car while apparently jaywalking in San
Francisco’s Financial District but is expected to survive, police Officer
Gordon Shyy said.

The collision was reported at about 12:40 p.m. near California and Drumm streets.

The pedestrian, a woman around 50 years old, ran across California Street
behind a San Francisco Municipal Railway cable car and was struck by an
eastbound vehicle whose driver did not see her, Shyy said.

The woman was taken to a hospital with complaints of pain to her head and
wrist, Shyy said.

The driver remained at the scene, cooperated with investigators and was not
cited, Shyy said.
