Muni Cable Car, Garbage Truck Collide In Nob Hill

A San Francisco Municipal Railway cable car and a garbage truck collided in the city’s Nob Hill neighborhood this morning, taking several cable car lines out of service, according to Muni officials.

Muni officials tweeted about the collision at 9:20 a.m. at Mason and Jackson streets involving an outbound cable car on the Powell/Mason line.

Four people reported injuries in the collision, but none required transport to a hospital, according to Muni spokesman Paul Rose.

The collision stopped service on the Powell/Hyde, Powell/Mason and California lines, which were served by buses until around 12:30 p.m., according to Rose.

Service has since been restored to all lines.
