The collision was reported near the corner of Market and Battery streets just before 5 p.m. today, 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.

Streets have been reopened in the area as of around 6 p.m., Manfredi said.

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

Earlier today, 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.
