Victim identified in fatal Castro Muni bus collision 

The woman struck and killed by a Muni bus Friday has been identified by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

Emily Dunn, 23, of San Francisco was in a crosswalk at the intersection of 18th and Hartford streets, near Castro Street, at 2:30 p.m. when a bus that was making a left turn struck her, according to police Sgt. Michael Andraychak.

The woman had crossed the street about 95 percent of the way when she was hit and pinned underneath the bus, officials said.

Crews arrived at the scene shortly after and extricated the woman from underneath the bus, but she was pronounced dead at 2:45 p.m., Fire Department Lt. Mindy Talmdage said.

The bus that hit the woman had been taken out of service on another line and was on its way to be used as a shuttle bus for the F-Market streetcar line, Andraychak said. Muni had reported high ridership on the historic streetcars and was bringing in buses to shuttle passengers, police said.

There were no passengers aboard the bus as it made its way toward the F-Market stop at 17th and Market streets, Andraychak said. Police and area residents said the street was not a usual Muni route.

The Muni driver is cooperating with the investigation and will be tested for drugs and alcohol per San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency protocol.
