SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – A collision involving a school bus, station wagon and a motorcycle injured one person Wednesday morning north of the Panhandle in San Francisco, authorities said.
The collision occurred about at 7:58 a.m. on Oak Street, between Lyon and Baker Streets, according to the fire dispatcher.
Fred Stein, the driver of the station wagon told KCBS' Jeffrey Schaub that he was stopped in the middle lane on Oak Street when he and his passenger felt a "jolt" as the First Student school bus struck them from behind.
"It pushed us into the motorcyclist who launched him a little bit and then tried to stay upright and ended veering off to the parked cars on the left side," Stein said. "The driver (of the bus) said that she tried to hit the brakes but that they didn't engage right away."
Stein said a nurse, who happened to be at the scene, made sure the motorcyclist was okay and said the man was coherent.
The injured motorcyclist was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.
There were no children on the school bus at the time of the accident.
