A Mercedes SUV crashed into a bus stop in the West Portal area of the city on Saturday afternoon, authorities stated, according to The Associated Press (AP).

The city’s mayor, London Breed, posted her condolences to the victims and their families Saturday on X, describing the scene she visited as “heartbreaking.”

Flowers and tributes were posted at the site of the collision by tearful friends and locals on Sunday, the outlet reported.
