A vehicle crashed into a shuttle bus carrying 14 elderly passengers Thursday night near Parkmerced, injuring seven and leaving one in critical condition.

Around 9:16 p.m., the shuttle stalled on Junipero Serra Boulevard near Brotherhood Way and was rear-ended by another vehicle carrying five passengers, according to San Francisco police.

Three passengers were hospitalized, including a 77-year-old man with life-threatening injuries as well as a 76-year-old female and an 89-year-old male, both with non-life-threatening injuries.

However, fire department spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge said a total of seven

passengers were taken to hospitals in San Francisco and San Mateo

county, although she couldn't say what shuttle company was involved.

The crash remains under investigation and no fault has been

determined yet, police said.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
