Cable car service on Powell Street resumes

San Francisco's historic cable cars resumed service on Powell Street Sunday morning following a cable problem Saturday that left four people
injured, a spokesman said.

The incident happened at about 1:10 p.m. when service was suddenly disrupted on the Powell Street portion of the Powell-Hyde historic cable car line, Muni spokesman Judson True said.

The conductor, gripman and two passengers on the cable car were injured, but all are expected to survive, according to True.

Cable car service on Powell Street was suspended until the start of regular service Sunday morning, he said.

The line runs between Fisherman's Wharf and the cable car turnaround at Powell and Market streets.
