SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Nine people were hurt in a crash involving a San Francisco Muni bus and a streetcar Wednesday afternoon.
The collision happened just before 2 p.m. on Market Street and 8th, where one an F-Market & Wharves historic streetcars appeared to have rear-ended a 6-Haight/Parnassus trolley bus.
San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Paul Rose said eight patients were transported to hospitals and a ninth was
treated at the scene.
Those injured appeared to all be passengers on the two Muni vehicles, Rose said.
Fire officials said none of the injuries were life-threatening.
Market St. was closed between 8th and 9th Ave. and people were urged to avoid the area.
Service on the F line was delayed, with outbound streetcars switching at the Ferry Terminal, and inbound service switching at 11th and Market, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.
Other lines rerouted or otherwise affected were the 6, 7, 9 and 9R, and the 21. Muni officials were urging passengers to use subway service rather than surface lines.
No word yet on the cause of the crash.
