3:05 PM: Problem cleared, everything back as it was.

2:08 PM: SF MTA spokesperson Judson True alerts the media that at 1:38 today, a non-Muni accident (sure True said “whew!” here) has interrupted regular service on the 47 Van Ness and the 49 Van Ness-Mission at Van Ness and Ellis.

He says the 47 is going around the block to avoid it and the 49, which runs on those overhead wires, is not running on Van Ness between Hayes and Post.
