Service on J-Church restored after collision

Service on the J-Church line has been restored after the light-rail train collided with a motorcycle Wednesday evening, but commuters can still expect some delays as trains try to get back on schedule.

Around 4:09 p.m., service on the J line was disrupted because of an accident between the train and a motorcycle at San Jose and San Juan avenues. The accident was cleared one hour later.

The motorcyclist refused medical attention, according to Muni officials.

Muni spokesman Paul Rose said it was not clear if the train struck the motorcyclist or vice versa.

Shuttle buses were in place between 30th Street and Balboa Park. Trains headed toward downtown San Francisco operated on the K-Ingleside route for a short time.
