Three people were hospitalized Tuesday following a collision involving a San Francisco Municipal Railway light-rail vehicle on Taraval Street, the second Muni-involved accident that day a spokesman said.
The collision happened between 20th and 21st avenues at about 8:15 p.m. Preliminary reports indicate an L-Taraval train and the other vehicle were both heading west when the vehicle made a U-turn and the two collided, according to Muni spokesman Judson True.
Three passengers from the vehicle were taken to San Francisco General Hospital to be treated for injuries that are not life-threatening, True said. There were no reported injuries on the train.
Bus shuttles temporarily provided substitute service on the L-Taraval line between St. Francis Circle and the San Francisco Zoo, but regular service was restored at 9:40 p.m.
The accident occurred at about 2:40 p.m. on Stanyan Street near Fulton Street.
True said initial reports indicate the pedestrian fell while running to catch the bus as it pulled away from the bus stop.
He suffered a major leg injury and his wounds are believed to be potentially life-threatening.
Buses were temporarily re-routed around that intersection.
