SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man who was struck by a SamTrans bus in San Francisco’s Outer Mission neighborhood earlier this week has died, a spokeswoman for the transit agency said Thursday.

The 50-year-old man was hit when he stepped onto Mission Street near Valencia Street, just south of Cesar Chavez Street around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, according to police.

SamTrans spokeswoman Christine Dunn said that at the time of the collision, the SamTrans Route 391 bus was traveling south, heading from the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco to the Redwood City Caltrain station.

The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for head and torso injuries, police said.

Dunn said the man later succumbed to his injuries.

The driver of the bus involved in the incident has been removed from duty and tested for drugs and alcohol, as is standard procedure, Dunn said.

Police are continuing to investigate the accident.
