A San Francisco Municipal Railway bus struck a pedestrian in the city’s Mission District on Friday morning, according to police.

At about 7:15 a.m. Friday, a woman in her 60s was crossing the street at the intersection of South Van Ness Avenue and 25th Street when a Muni bus struck her, police said.

The pedestrian was in a crosswalk when she was hit, police said.
