A death on the Muni tracks Friday shut down the service in the subway for several hours, causing major delays to the underground Metro service for morning commuters.
A man was struck and killed by an N-Judah train at about 7:30 a.m. at Muni’s Montgomery Station. Investigators were working to determine why he was on the tracks. The manwas apparently walking in the tunnel between the Montgomery and Embarcadero stations when he was struck by the light-rail train, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.
Muni Metro service was shut down completely between Church Street Station and the Embarcadero Station, according to agency spokesman Paul Rose.
Bus shuttles were set up to transfer passengers between the two stations. Service was restored at about 10:30 a.m.
