Muni was delayed for more than an hour today after a man in a wheelchair reportedly fell in front of an outbound train at the Powell Station.

The Chron reports that at about 12:30 p.m., the man somehow fell onto the tracks in the path of an outbound N-Judah train.

According to reports, the train operator saw the man and quickly hit the emergency brake, bringing the train to a stop before it could hit the man.

The man was taken to a local hospital where he's being treated for his injuries, however the extent of his injuries is unknown.

Muni service through Powell Station was halted in both directions until 1:20 p.m. as crews worked to clear the scene, according to the Chron.

  • 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.'"
