Surveillance video that captured an accident in which a man was struck and then pinned under a shuttle bus clearly shows that the pedestrian was using the crosswalk when hit by the van.
As reported yesterday, the accident was reported at 2:18 PM Tuesday at Eddy and Leavenworth streets.
San Francisco fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said a man was struck by a transport van and pinned underneath the vehicle. Fire crews responded and extricated the victim at 2:38 p.m., she said.
As you can see from surveillance video obtained by KRON4 (Warning: it can be upsetting to see a person get hit by a bus! If you don’t want to see that sort of thing, do not watch the video embedded below), the pedestrian was in the middle of the crosswalk when the right-turning shuttle bus slammed straight into him.
Two ambulances were called–one for the pedestrian and another for the driver, who began suffering from a medical problem. Both were transported to a hospital.
According to KRON4, the pedestrian is expected to survive.
