One day after a Muni light-rail vehicle collided with a van
, two more nasty accidents have put a damper on the Friday.
A T-Third train has been knocked out of service due to an accident near Innes Street.
That train apparently came into contact with a big rig.
Meanwhile, on Geary and Buchanan, an accordion bus and a truck had a smack-up — resulting in the damage pictured above. All told, at least 40 people were injured in the mishaps.
Our calls to Muni have not yet been returned. More when we know more.
Update, 3:30 p.m.:
The big rig that came into contact with the LRV on Third and Innes apparently made an illegal left turn, per the San Francisco Police Department. The train derailed, and was knocked several feet from the tracks.
That area will be closed to all traffic for the next hour or so. Twenty people were injured, and 11 were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver has not yet been cited.
Meanwhile, in Japantown, 20 people were injured and 12 hospitalized after a 38-Geary bus rear-ended a dump truck.
