Truck flips onto roof on Market Street 

The driver of a Chevy was taken to the hospital Tuesday after his truck flipped over the steel protector of a bus stop on Market Street.

The Chevy then hit the operator side of a 6-Parnassus bus, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. Authorities responded to the scene at about 12:45 p.m. Traffic along Market Street was delayed for hours.

Michael Bauer, 53, was in San Francisco on business walking down Market Street when the crash happened. He said the Chevy was driving eastbound at about 25 miles per hour when it made a sudden lane change just before the bus stop. It then hit the steel U-bar protecting the bus island.

“It just went airborne and landed on its roof,” Bauer said.

The driver got out of the car and was moving as paramedics picked him up. Despite dozens of people milling about in the area, there were no other reported injuries.
