Pedestrian Hit by Schoolbus on Highway 280 Suffers Moderate Injuries

A pedestrian suffered moderate injuries in a collision with a school bus on Interstate Highway 280 in San Francisco this afternoon, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The collision happened around 12:15 p.m. on northbound Highway 280 just south of the Ocean Avenue overcrossing, CHP Officer Vu Williams said.

Witnesses said a man was on the right shoulder and ran into oncoming traffic, according to Williams.

He was then hit by the school bus in the second lane from the right, Williams said.

The pedestrian was transported to San Francisco General Hospital. Williams could not describe the man’s injuries but said he was conscious and talking at the scene.

The bus driver was the sole occupant of the vehicle and unscathed in the collision. He stayed at the scene and was cooperative with officers, Williams said.

It does not appear that the bus sustained damage from the collision, he said.

The two right lanes on northbound Highway 280 were closed due to the accident until shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to Williams.
