    A woman who was struck and killed by a San Francisco Municipal  Railway bus in the Castro District Friday has been identified as 23-year-old  Emily Dunn, according to the medical examiner's office.

        Dunn, a San Francisco resident, was walking west on 18th Street  around 2:30 p.m. when she crossed Hartford Street and was struck by a bus  that was turning left onto Hartford Street from 18th Street.     The victim was about 90 percent of the way across the street when  she was hit, causing fatal injuries, police said.
        Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
        The bus that struck Dunn was a shuttle for the F-line, according  to Muni officials. There is no regularly scheduled bus service on Hartford  Street, but police said the street is a common route for F-line shuttles.
        The driver remained at the scene and will be taking a chemical  test, police said.
        The Police Department's Major Traffic and Hit and Run divisions  are investigating the collision
