CHP Officer Vu Williams says a Muni bus and dump truck collided. The driver of the dump truck was killed. Several people complained of injury on the Muni bus. Two of the passengers were transported to hospital. The bus suffered minor damage. 

The accident was reported just before 4 p.m. at the very busy hospital curve section of the highway.

The two right lanes of 101 were shutdown for several hours while CHP investigated. 

All lanes were reopened at around 7:50 p.m., according to officials. There are residual delays.  

The public is asked to avoid the area.
