    Nine people, including two children, were injured Saturday evening when a double-decker tour bus crashed with an SUV just north of the Ferry Building on The Embarcadero in San Francisco, authorities.

    The first report of the crash came in shortly before 6 p.m. on the northbound side of The Embarcadero at Broadway.

    All nine suffered minor injuries, the most serious a broken ankle, according to officials. Seven were taken to a hospital. 

    San Francisco police said the driver of the Ford Explorer would "most likely" be cited for cutting off the bus, forcing the bus driver to stop short. Police said, preliminarily, drugs or alcohol didn't seem to be a factor.

    The bus was being operated by Big Bus Tours of San Francisco. General manager Andrew Smith said the company driver had been on the job for two years.

    A crash of double-decker tour bus last month in San Francisco's Union Square injured 20, according to police and fire officials.
