Look at this:
You can’t do this – it’s agin the law.
So, yes, you had a little fender-bender with your big bus, and yes, it was related to the endless tinkering done by the SFMTA MUNI DPT DPW bowl of alphabet soup. So what! It’s not that big of a deal. CSI San Francisco isn’t going to send it’s Go Team and the NTSB isn’t coming neither.
Therefore, get your bus out of the roadway, pull it over. Sure, take a couple iPhone shots first, sure. But then get outta the way. THIS IS SFPD POLICY. Don’t you know this? You had at least two employees on the scene, why not have one, I don’t know, let’s call him the Driver, drive the bus to one side of the road or the other. Did you call the SFPD? IDK, but if you did, don’t you want them to show up? Now, how are they going to do that if you block the road, which, as stated, is a noteworthy bottleneck already, due to ongoing construction efforts, for umpty-ump minutes?
I cry foul.
Can you reconstruct the scene here?
The first vehicle (you know, the one with the driver who, post-accident, took off with a quickness) struck the Toyota, which struck the Honda, which struck the Ford, which struck the other Toyota.

No injuries and maximum humor, you can’t beat that.
Things weren’t looking so hot for the driver of this #5 Fulton MUNI bus at this scene a while back, ’cause even the City-employed investigator was basically admitting that the pilot of the black Nissan sedan wasn’t at fault.
When pulling into traffic, you need to look first – that rule applies to people pulling buses out of bus stops as well you and me.
(Some MUNI drivers don’t pull into bus stops for this very reason. Oh well.)
When you crash into a city bus make sure you file notice of your claim within the next six months (otherwise your claim might go poof)
Let’s be careful out there.
