One year old, woman hospitalized after Mission district crash; Muni rerouted 

A female driver and her one-year-old passenger were hospitalized Monday morning after she crashed into a fire hydrant in San Francisco’s Mission district, police said. Two San Francisco Municipal Railway bus lines have been rerouted because of the accident, a Muni spokesman said.

The woman drove her 1995 Toyota Camry into a hydrant at the intersection of 23rd and Mission Streets at about 4:15 a.m., San Francisco police said.

The one year old suffered life-threatening injuries, and was taken to a local hospital. The driver was also taken to the hospital, with injuries that were not life threatening, police said.

The outbound 14-Mission and 49-Van Ness-Mission buses were rerouted to South Van Ness Avenue, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.

Two shuttles have also been provided to transport passengers between 14th and Mission Streets and 26th and Mission Streets, he said.

These route changes and shuttles will be in effect until police clear the crash from the road and conclude their investigation, Rose said.

Investigators are still at the scene, and the cause of the crash is unknown, according to police.

There is some traffic near the intersection due to the investigation, police said.
