San Francisco, CA — A fatal two-vehicle crash involving a semi-truck and a UCSF shuttle bus has killed one man and injured three others in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood. The fatal automobile accident occurred at 6:20 a.m. at Octavia and Oak streets, reported the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to police, a 2007 Peterbuilt semi-truck transporting four cars was traveling north on Octavia, when it collided with a UCSF shuttle bus that was taking UCSF employees to San Francisco General Hospital. It is not immediately known which direction the shuttle bus was headed in.

The impact of the crash ejected one passenger on the shuttle bus, causing them to become pinned under the semi-truck. Responding emergency crews pronounced him dead at the scene of the crash.

Three passengers of the shuttle bus sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the wreck.

The semi-truck involved in the wreck is reportedly leased to Mag Transportation LLC of Inman, S.C., and is operated and owned by a Massachusetts man.

Police are investigating the cause of the fatal semi-truck accident.
