2:50 PM: Thanks again to YOUR open govt advocacy candidate Jackson West, who extracted the video from Muni’s onboard cameras app to get us the above onboard camera video from all angles, as well as the brief video from the crash below.

11:48 AM: As we confirmed Tuesday, that morning’s accident involving a 19 Polk and pickup truck was caught on tape, and Muni, to their credit, has released it for you to see.

The footage above you’re seeing is from their DriveCam system. They released footage from their onboard video surveillance system, but we’re having some issues downloading it and will upload it as soon as we can.

Update: We want to show you the onboard video SO BAD! But it’s a file we’re having trouble getting to work on any of our machines. We’re working on it! Update:

HUGE THANKS to Jackson West for extracting the onboard video file from a crazy proprietary app. This video is THE GOOD STUFF. Check it:

As the MTA notes in a release, “The video appears to show that the Muni bus rolled through its STOP sign on De Haro Street and the truck ran its STOP sign.”

Pete Pon, the 31-year veteran of Muni who was operating the 19 Polk,remains on non-driving status pending the outcome of the investigation.

Elsewhere: SF Weekly has some nice stills from the onboard video you just watched above, and the Chronicle posts a GRIPPING TEXT DESCRIPTION of the video.
