Eight people were injured after a double decker bus carrying tourists crashed in the Embarcadero Saturday night.
KRON reports that the crash occurred at the intersection of Broadway and Embarcadero around 6 p.m. Saturday, just north of the Ferry Building.
According to ABC 7, eight people, including two children, were treated by paramedics and taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. One injured person refused treatment.
CBS 5 said that a black Ford SUV moved from the left lane in front of the Big Bus double decker, and that the driver was cited for an illegal lane change.
"Police investigation has it listed as a fender-bender," said Andrew Smith, General Manager and Senior VP of Big Bus Tours said. "The [tour bus] driver was fine, a little shaken up, but fine."
From last week's news that multiple tour buses in a different fleet (City Sightseeing) have some pretty serious mechanical problems following that company's November crash into the Union Square Apple store that injured 20, it has not been a good year for San Francisco tour buses. Let's hope for a smoother ride in 2016.
