8 injured in San Francisco tour bus accident

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A tour bus crash in San Francisco has slightly injured eight people.

The San Francisco Chronicle says the double-decker bus and an SUV collided shortly before 6 p.m. Saturday on the Embarcadero near the Ferry Building.

Eight people received minor injuries. Seven were taken to hospitals and one declined treatment.

The crash comes about a month after a sightseeing bus went out of control and hit a cyclist, parked cars and a store that was under construction in Union Square. Twenty people were injured in that Nov. 13 crash.

Officials say the bus apparently had a mechanical failure.
