A total of 62 patients were treated at San Francisco General following the accident and 45 of those have been discharged.

The latest wave of patients arrived at SFGH around 9 p.m. Sunday.

That group consisted of eight adults and one child who had neck and back injuries, abdominal pain and muscle strain. All nine were treated and released.

This afternoon, there are 10 patients at Stanford Hospital.

Following the crash, 55 patients were transported there.

Of those 10 patients, only one remains in critical condition. The others are listed in fair or good condition, hospital officials said.
