An SUV crashes into a group of people waiting for a bus in the City seriously injuring several people.

The bus shelter was at San Bruno and Arleta Avenue near Candlestick Park.  The group was actually waiting in the shade by a nearby building when they were hit by a Ford Explorer.

Two of the victims were listed in critical condition Tuesday night.

Mindy Talmadge with the San Francisco Fire Department said that a female driver was going down San Bruno when she lost power to her vehicle and then lost her ability to steer.

The driver then veered through a fence and into the group of people waiting for a bus. 

The five people who were hurt ranged in ages from 30 to 80-years old.

 As of 11:30 a.m., one of the victims was in critical condition and the other four were in serious condition, San Francisco General  spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said.

The driver was not injured in the crash and remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators.

"She was extremely emotional and upset," San Francisco fire Lt.  Mindy Talmadge said.
