UPDATE 7:30 p.m: The SFMTA reported via social media that the investigation is ongoing at Church Street station, and will continue “well into the night.” In the meantime, M-Oceanview and L-Taraval are running between Balboa Park and the zoo. The N-Judah and J-Church are unaffected by this delay.
A deceased person was found on Muni’s tracks this afternoon, according to the SFMTA.
“A body was found on the trackway in the subway near Church station heading inbound,” Paul Rose, spokesperson for the SFMTA, told the Examiner. “We don’t have specific details, but are working with SFPD to pull video to get more details.”
A Muni operator first reported the body between Castro Street and Church Street Stations.
“This is being investigated as a collision, and will be handled by the SFPD Traffic Collision Investigation Unit and the Medical Examiner’s Office,” reports Sergeant Michael Andraychak from SFPD.
The SFMTA began reporting delays shortly after 3 p.m. today. Due to the delays, passengers are being advised to take alternate routes to their destinations. Bus shuttles are providing service between West Portal and Van Ness stations and BART will be honoring Muni fares.
