A  50-year-old man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after he tried to board a moving Muni trolley along Market Street.

Firefighters were called out to the intersection of Market and Seventh streets after the man reportedly tried to board the back of the F car as it was pulling away. The man got trapped underneath the trolley's wheels.

Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni, said they are still investigating the specifics of the accident.

However, the accident caused quite a back up along Market Street, the city's main artery. Trolley cars were halted while officials investigated the incident.

  • 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.'"
