A unidentified man was rushed to the hospital this morning after a T-Third Street Muni light rail crashed into him in the Bayview neighborhood early this morning.

Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni, says that at about 5:01 a.m., a man was trying to cross the street at Third Street and Carroll Avenue when the collision occurred. The man, who hit the front side of the vehicle, was taken to San Francisco General Hospital with injuries to his head and face. 
Muni provided a bus bridge from Sunnydale Avenue to Williams Avenue while investigators were on the scene.

"The operator will go through a drug and alcohol test per standard procedure," Rose told us.  

The incident was cleared at about 7:30 a.m.

  • 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.'"
