SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Four adults remain in critical condition following a double-decker tour bus crash that injured 20 people in San Francisco two days ago.
San Francisco General Hospital spokesman Brent Andrew said the status of the two men and two women has not changed. Two other men remain in serious condition.
He declined to comment on the condition of a minor who was also admitted to the hospital Friday.
At St. Francis Hospital, spokeswoman Felicity Simmons said that one man remains in stable condition Sunday.
Witnesses said the big blue tour bus raced across two city blocks, hitting a bicyclist, two pedestrians and striking several moving cars before ramming into scaffolding that finally stopped its run in the city’s popular Union Square.
Twenty people were hurt and at least 30 passengers were onboard when the crash occurred shortly before 3 p.m.
Firefighters had to extricate the two pedestrians, who ended up trapped under the bus, and a passenger trapped on the upper deck.
The CEO of City Sightseeing San Francisco, Christian Watts, issued a statement by email Saturday, saying that the company is “deeply saddened” by the crash and that it was cooperating with authorities.
San Francisco Police Officer Albie Esparza said it will take time to piece together what happened given the number of witnesses and passengers to interview. The department will also inspect the bus.
Esparza declined to name the driver or the injured, saying no charges have been filed.
