    A car smashed into a Bank of America branch on Mission Street and Geneva Avenue.

    Officers responded to the solo-vehicle crash at a Bank of America about 5:50 a.m. Tuesday morning, Officer Albie Esparza said.

    A white sedan crashed into the building next to a bus stop.

    According to Esparza, the female driver was driving at a high rate of speed south on Mission and almost hit a Muni bus. Police believe it might be a DUI crash. Investigators are trying to determine how fast the driver was going at the time of the crash.

    "Thankfully noone else was hurt -- on a weekday, at a bus stop, it could have been a lot worse," Esparza said.

    The driver was transported to San Francisco General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The car is reportedly registered to someone in San Bernandino County.

    The San Francisco Fire Department also responded to the scene, Esparza said.
