SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A San Francisco Municipal Railway bus and a taxi collided outside the city’s Hall of Justice Thursday morning.

The crash happened about 10 a.m. outside the building at 850 Bryant St.

An officer at the scene said the cab driver had just come off of Interstate Highway 80 onto Bryant Street and was trying to make a right turn onto Gilbert Street when it cut off the bus.

The bus struck the right rear of the cab, causing it to spin around and hit a fire hydrant across the street from the Hall of Justice. The hydrant did not rupture and no water leaked.

A middle-aged woman in the cab was taken to a hospital in an ambulance but appeared to have suffered only minor injuries.

All of the passengers on the bus, an inbound 8X-Bayshore Express articulated bus, were unloaded.
