1:35 PM: Muni says the accident was cleared at 1:15, and regular service has resumed.

12:50 PM: Muni tells us that “as of 12:09 p.m.” L Taraval Muni Metro service has been disrupted after the L hit a car at Taraval and 34th Ave.

“The male driver of the automobile has reportedly been transported to San Francisco General Hospital with unknown injuries” said Muni spokesperson Judson True, in an email.

True also says that the L Taraval was heading inbound (east) through the intersection, as the car passed tyhrough the intersection from southbound 34th Avenue.

True noted that the intersection has stop signs for those on 34th crossing Taraval (that is, the car in this equation), but that traffic on Taraval does not have a stop.

Until the accident is cleared, shuttle buses will run in place of the L.
