SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two public transit buses crashed near downtown San Francisco, causing one of the buses to jump the curb and hit a lamp pole. Four people were injured.

KPIX-TV reports the crash occurred shortly after 9 a.m. Wednesday when one bus traveling in the South of Market neighborhood collided with several other vehicles, including the second bus.

The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District said the four injured included three passengers and one of the bus drivers, all of whom were taken to hospitals.

San Francisco police spokesman Robert Rueca said the impact forced the bus that was struck to skid onto a nearby sidewalk, where it hit scaffolding around a building and a light pole before coming to a halt.

Rueca said no pedestrians were injured.
