Update 9 a.m.: Muni Spokesman Paul Rose tells us the operator underwent a drug and alcohol test and has been put on non-driving status for now. He had no updates on the condition of the victim.

Original Story 8:15 a.m.: A 25-year-old woman is in critical condition this morning after a Muni light rail hit her as she walked through Merced Heights yesterday afternoon.

According to SFPD, the accident happened just after 3 p.m. at 19th Avenue and Junipero Serra; the woman was crossing the street outside of the sidewalk when the Muni car collided into her.

The victim was taken to a local hospital where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

We called Muni officials this morning to get more details on the accident, and we'll update you when we hear back.

Until then, be careful out there.

  • 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.'"
