The driver of a runaway commuter bus in San Francisco that killed three pedestrians when it plowed into a rush-hour crowd flunked a training program to become a city bus driver last year, according to officials. "He . . . washed out for poor road performance," San Francisco Municipal Railway spokesman George Newkirk said of Salvador Orogo. Newkirk said Orogo, 53, failed the railway's 35-day training program last spring after six to 10 days, noting that 90% of those who enter the program pass.

Three people were killed and nine injured when a commuter bus accelerated out of control across a crowded downtown intersection at the height of the afternoon rush hour Tuesday. Police Chief Frank Jordan said the bus driver, who suffered only slight injuries, told investigators that the gas pedal stuck. There was no indication that the driver was intoxicated, Jordan said. "It's not a pretty sight," the police chief noted.
