Skateboarder, Muni bus collide 

A 5-Fulton Muni bus and a skateboarder collided Wednesday morning, sending the skater to the hospital.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Baker and McAllister streets around 9:40 a.m., San Francisco police Officer Boaz Mariles said.

The details of the accident were still hazy hours later, partly because the injured skateboarder left the scene to seek his own medical attention before police arrived, Mariles said.

Police officers had to contact several nearby hospitals before they tracked him down to interview him about the incident, Mariles said.

Per its policy, Muni tested the bus driver for drugs and alcohol.
