The family of Emily Dunn, the 23-year-old who was struck and killed by a Muni bus driving an improvised route in the Castro last August, will sue San Francisco. The Examiner reports: "Michael Kelly, a lawyer representing the Dunns, said the family will submit a claim regarding the accident later this week."

Fatal Muni accidents typically result in big payouts. "In 2008, the agency released $21 million to the family of Elizabeth Dominguez, a 4-year-old girl who was struck and killed by an agency utility truck. Earlier this year, the agency approved a $5.4 million settlement to David Wheeler for injuries he sustained after being struck by a Muni bus while on his bike."
