Muni disrupted after minor accident

Two people were slightly hurt this morning after the mirror of a 71-Haight-Noriega Muni bus swiped a historic F-Market street car downtown.

An injured passenger of the F-line complained of pain but declined to be taken to the hospital, San Francisco Fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said. The operator of the street car was “a little shaken,” in the crash, she said.  The operator is receiving medical attention but has not been taken to the hospital, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency spokesman Judson True said.

The 11:20 a.m. crash occurred near the intersection of Market and Grant streets, True said. The street car was traveling outbound on Market Street when it was struck by the mirror of the inbound 71 bus.

The accident disrupted F-Market service between the Ferry Building and Van Ness Avenue but has now been cleared, True said.

No one was transported to the hospital as a result of the accident.
