  • Four people suffered back pain, facial bruising and other minor injuries Monday when a Muni driver halted suddenly to avoid a collision with a car making a U-turn.

At least four people were injured Monday afternoon when a Muni bus driver stopped suddenly to avoid hitting a car that made a U-turn in front of the vehicle, Muni and fire officials said.

The incident was reported at 2:46 p.m. at Harrison and Essex streets in South of Market, Fire Department spokeswoman Lt. Mindy Talmadge said.

The 108-Treasure Island bus did not hit the car that had turned in front of it, but the sudden stop caused injuries to at least four people aboard the coach, said spokesman Paul Rose of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The injuries were all considered minor, including complaints of back pain and facial bruising, Talmadge said.
