The Muni driver who killed a pedestrian on Friday was driving an undefined route when he hit 23-year-old Emily Dunn as she walked through the Castro neighborhood.
Muni Spokesman Paul Rose told the Chron that the driver had been instructed to take his bus out of service and bring it to supplement the F line, which runs from the Castro to the Embarcadero. However, the control center did not give the driver — who has not been identified — directions or a specific route from the Financial District where he was to the Castro for his new assignment.
Rose said this lack of communication was a clear violation of Muni rules. “They are supposed to be given a route when they are asked to switch lines,” he says.
