san francisco on friday and there are some red flags. more than a dozen people were injured friday after the bus careened out of control and became entangled in construction scaffolding. six people are still in the hospital, four with critical injuries. andria borba has more on the bus company's past. >> reporter: this is the moment friday's mayhem began. this is surveillance video from a hotel. while it's tough to see that blob in the middle of the frame is a bicyclist getting hit by an out-of-control double-decker bus. it wasn't until two blocks later slamming into a construction site at post and stockton after ricocheting off cars and pedestrians that the bus finally stopped injuring 20 people. a look at the records shows the state puc fined the company city sightseeing for a number of violations in 2007. but city sightseeing never paid the fine. the company eventually closed down and reopened under an employee's name. >> it appears to be intentional and certainly flagrant. and to know that they serve
over 1.5 million people over the last five years, um, you would expect that a tour bus company would find it in their interests to ensure that their paying customers, um, were as safe as they could be. >> reporter: we have also learned the license plates on the bus didn't match the list of vehicles on file with the state. that's called a ghost bus. and sources with the puc tell kpix 5 that this bus came from new york and wasn't checked by the chp in the last round of inspections in september. >> we need to make sure that our rules are followed. we need to make sure that the regulating agencies have done everything they can to make sure that ghost buses are not traveling on the streets of san francisco and around the state of california. >> reporter: in a statement, city sightseeing said they inspect their buses every 45 days and that the bus in question was last inspected on october 25. now, a preliminary investigation into the cause of the crash seems to point toward a mechanical failure of the
