A man was struck and killed by a bus Saturday night in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood, and police are investigating how and why the man was hit, police said.
Police were called at 7:30 p.m. Saturday to the intersection of Golden Gate and Hyde Streets, where a bus struck the adult man as he was crossing the street, said San Francisco police Officer Joseph Tomlinson. Police performed life-saving measures on the man, who was soon taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
Tomlinson said he didn’t know which agency owned the bus involved, though he said the driver remained at the scene after the accident.
But San Francisco Supervisor Matt Haney, who has called for measures to make that intersection safer, identified the bus as belonging to Golden Gate Transit.
A vigil for the man who died is planned at that intersection at 5 p.m. Monday.
