Muni Collides with Yet Another Vehicle Today

  • This is not the accident from today

We've all had bad mornings, but Muni is having a particularly off day. The transit service is ending 2011 with back-to-back collisions, both of which involve a Muni streetcar colliding with vehicles.

Just a few short hours after Muni cleared an accident on the Third Street T line, where a police patrol car and train collided, a K-line light rail vehicle hit a car in the Mission Bay neighborhood.

According to Muni spokesman Paul Rose, the two vehicles collided at about 9:13 a.m. right on King and Third streets. The train was out of service until about 9:40 a.m., when the accident was clear, Rose said.

There were no injuries.

Muni set up a bus bridge to supplement service through the morning, Rose said.

At about 5:45 a.m., a police patrol car collided with an outbound Muni streetcar on Third and 22nd

streets. Four people were taken to

the hospital with moderate injuries, including two cops and the Muni operator. A passenger was treated for minor injuries, Rose said.

Both accidents are being investigated.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
